Paper Abstract

We describe an experiment to visualize air flow separation in an aircraft air-intake. This experiment was realized in a large industrial wind-tunnel. It uses optical fibers to bring a laser beam into the model and an optical fiber endoscope to visualize images of the phenomenon. Some pictures showing changes of the air flow separation are presented for several aerodynamic conditions.
