Abstract

A study of the wake behind a Glauert model rotor in a water channel is reported. Phase-locked planar PIV is used to extract signatures of the coherent structures in the wake. The results show for first time both the tip and root vortices behind a wind turbine model operating at the run-away condition. Features of the wake are reported and evolution of the vortical filaments are discussed.
