AIAA CFD High Lift Prediction Workshop
Partical Image Velocimetry (PIV) data were taken at the low Reynolds number condition of
ReMAC=1.35 million in the B-LSWT (Airbus Low Speed Wind Tunnel in Bremen).
This planar data only included the U (streamwise) and W (up) components of velocity. The
component in the y-direction was not measured.
Included here are data taken at three different y-planes: 246.386 mm, 979.596 mm, and 1223.999 mm.
Three different angle-of-attack conditions are included: AoA=7 deg, 18.5 deg, and 21 deg.
The PIV windows are shown in the following figures.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The PIV data are not valid near the walls.
There are also occasional "dropped spots" of bad data.
The given x and z locations of the PIV planes are believed to be accurate to within +-2 mm.
The PIV velocity data accuracy is not known.

PIV velocity data above are given in m/s. To nondimensionalize by "freestream" velocity,
divide by 60 m/s (see Additional Experimental Info page). As a convenience, the
following files contain extracted PIV velocity
(nondimensionalized by "freestream") at or near the same lines requested for the workshop:
