An experimental study was conducted to investigate the effects of a leading edge extension(LEX) on the vortex flow field over a delta wing by measuring the total pressure distribution in a subsonic wind tunnel. Freestream velocity was 40m/sec and Reynolds number per meter was 1.76×106. The wing with the LEX experienced a strong interaction between the LEX and wing vortices. As the angle of attack increased, the coupled vortex field of these two vortices maintained its strength and concentricity much better than the vortex field over the wing without the LEX.
