This dataset contains: MATLAB files with pressure and velocity fields for all experiments presented in the manuscript. In addition, the original MATLAB figure files are included.
The datset storage is as follows: Experimental test cases are stored in folders as SSSS_AA where 'SSSS' is the airfoil shape and 'AA' is the angle of attack. Each case contains five run folders e.g. run 1 is labeled 'R01'. Each run folder contains instantaneous fields stored as 'S*.mat' with u,v, and p corresponding to the streamwise velocity, cross-stream velocity, and pressure fields respectively in sequential order. In addition, a 'stats' folder is included with statistical fields, masks, and x-y coordinates. Two masks are included, one 'mask.mat' corresponding to the airfoil cross section and one 'o_mask.mat' corresponding to the data that is visually occluded at the measurement plane.
The figures are as follows:
Fig. 1 Diagram of the experimental setup and mean velocity fields for the attached case with overlapping fields of views
Fig. 2 Surface pressure coefficients comparison with RANS simulation and their standard deviation on the suction side
Fig. 3 Unit vectors surrounding the airfoil for the deep stall case used to compute acoustic pressure
