The vortex flow characteristics of a double-delta wing, which can change the incidence angle of its apex strake was investigated through the wing-surface pressure measurement and the particle image velocimetry(PIV) measurement of the wing-leeward flow region. The apex strake has sharp edges and can change its incidence angle with a hinge line at the 23% chord position measured from the apex of the main wing. The present study revealed that the incidence-angle change of the apex strake could greatly alter the vortex flow pattern around the double-delta wing and the wing-surface pressure distribution, which suggested that the apex strake could be used as an effective device for the active control of delta-wing vortex flow.ጊ缀Ѐ㘰〻Ԁ䭃䑎䴀
