Many aircraft, like fighters and bombers, are delta-winged aircraft. These aircraft have the characteristics of producing a greater lift at very small angles of attack even at very low Reynold’s number. Highly swept-wing aircraft experience greater lift due to the generation of the leading-edge vortex at a high angle of attack flight. The phenomena of vortex breakdown are noticed which leads to the reduction of the vortex lift and leads to the instability of the aircraft. This paper deals with an analysis of the flow on the delta wing with the existing literature and compares its benefits over the conventional wings using experimental and computational methods. The critical angles, pressure, and velocity variations are observed along with chord and spanwise locations.
