Abstract: While Vortex Generators (VGs) and Gurney Flaps (GFs) are commonly used for airfoil flow control, studies of a combination of the two devices are rare. The present investigation aims at examining the combined effect of VGs and GFs on a 20% thick airfoil. To this end, a wind tunnel investigation coupled with a computational study was performed. The present paper presents force, pressure and Stereo Particle Image Velocimetry measurements, along with Unsteady Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes simulations.
