A vortex generator is useable in a model in a fluid-dynamic channel. In order to save time during the development of vehicles, in particular, aircraft, to save wind tunnel time, it is suggested to configure the vortex generator to be switchable. A switchable vortex generator can be used, in particular, on models in fluid-dynamic channels and in fluid-dynamic channel tests.
1. A vortex generator for generating vortices, the vortex generator comprising: a vortex generating element, switchable between at least two stable switching states, such that the vortex generating element maintains each stable switching state without energy input; anda bistable biasing component configured to contact the vortex generating element to enable switching of the vortex generating element between the stable switching states by an energy impulse. 2. The vortex generator according to claim 1, wherein the bistable biasing component comprises at l...
