The baseline model consists of a swept wing. The wing section is a NACA 4412 with a constant chord along the wing span. The sweep angle has been set to 25°. This model has been selected since it has been well documented in the literature with recent numerical work dedicated to high-fidelity simulations at large Reynolds number, providing therefore an interesting reference for our study. The model has been designed to fit in the main test section of the large wind tunnel available at UORL. The model can integrate a movable and interchangeable part in which the fluidic actuators are implemented.
