Self-adaptive flap is a bio-inspired passive flow control device which emulates the covert feathers of birds in a most rudimentary form to delay flow separation. In a previous study, it was found that the use of self-adaptive flap on low aspect ratio wings at low Reynolds numbers increased the CLmaxand stall margin by more than 30%. In an effort to gain insight on the flow-field changes the self-adaptive flap effects on the suction surface of the wing with respect to its placement location, oil flow visualization and a two-dimensional particle image velocimetry (PIV) investigation werecarried out on low aspect ratio flat plate wings of rectangular, Zimmerman, and inverse Zimmerman planform at a Reynolds number of 105. The 2D-PIV investigations werecarried out on the mid span plane of the models. This paper reports the some of the pertinent results obtained from the investigation.
