Abstract: This paper applies the numerical simulation techniques based on the generalized conservation of circulation (GCC) method to investigate the effects of momentum injection by a leading-edge moving surface on flow past a two-dimensional aerofoil at a Reynolds number of 1000. The stream function and vorticity contours obtained together with the animated flow visualization show that the stall flow region is highly unsteady and consist mainly of large vortices being shed alternately. They are confined to a narrow region near the upper surface of aerofoil as Cu (the ratio of the speed of the moving surface to the free stream velocity) is raised. The proximity of vortices to the upper surface of aerofoil at high Cu is caused by the ability of free stream to negotiate around the leading edge since the leading-edge moving surface suppresses the growth of boundary layer by reducing the relative between the inviscid flow and the wall. As well-formed large scale vortices are associated with low pressure regions, their proximity to the aerofoil leads to increase in lift as speed ratio increases.
