A flow visualization study of the vortical flow over a cropped double-delta wing model with sharp leading edges and its three derivatives with small geometric modifications (fillets) at the strake wing junction was conducted in the Naval Postgraduate School water tunnel using the dye-injection technique. The fillets increased the wing area of the baseline model by 1%. The main focus of this study was to evaluate the effect of fillets on vortex core trajectories, interactions and breakdown on the leeward surface at high angle of attack (AOA) with zero sideslip angle. Comparison of test results for different fillet shapes indicates delay in both vortex interaction and breakdown at high AOA, particularly for the diamond fillet shapes. The vortex breakdown data implies lift augmentation for both static and dynamic case, with the static data correlating well with recently published numerical data.
