    The experimental and numerical results complemented each other to obtain detailed understanding of the unsteady aerodynamic behavior of the cascade. It was found that the separation bubble at the leading edge governed the vibration characteristics of blades through the oscillation of the separation bubble itself on the blade surfaces.

    Laminar Separation Bubbles. The performance of almost all model aircraft is strongly influenced by laminar separation bubbles, which may occur at low Reynolds numbers.
