... a stable LEV with no evidence of shedding. At Re =1400, flow visualization indicated an intense narrow region of spanwise flow within the core of the LEV, a feature conspicuously absent at Re =120. The results suggest that the transport of vorticity from the leading edge to the wake that permits prolonged...
