The book discusses the behavior of vortices over sharp and highly swept wing configurations used for current and future military aircraft. Special attention is paid to the effects of critical flow phenomenon such as vortex breakdown occurring at high angles of attack or high angular rates. The wind tunnel experiments conducted on delta-wing configurations in wind tunnels in Canada, Europe, Russia and the United States are given in eight chapters. The experiments provide an extended data base that gives insight into the effects of the angle of attack, angular rate, Reynolds number and Mach number on the behavior of vortices over several slender delta wings in stationary and instationary flights. A critical assessment is given in a separated chapter of the available experimental data bases and out of these data, one and the same data set is selected for the validation and verification of analytical and numerical solutions.Comprehensive computational results are given in another ten chapters. Steady-state and time-accurate solutions for the steady and unsteady flow over the selected delta-wing configuration are discussed. These solutions are generated using structured and unstructured grid methods. The analytical solutions for the flow over a delta wing are discussed and compared with experimental data in three more chapters. In the final chapter a validation and verification of the analytical and CFD solutions is given.
