Tuft flow visualization

Tuft flow visualization

Tuft flow visualization is a technique used to capture the instantaneous flow pattern formed by the tufts (light and flexible) stuck on to the model surface. The orientation of tufts with respect to the freestream flow clearly indicated the flow features like flow separation, reattachment and recirculation region.
