A convex corner models the upper surface of a deflected flap and shock-induced boundary layer separation occurs at transonic speeds. This study uses micro-vortex generators (MVGs) for flow control. An array of MVGs (counter-rotating vane type, ramp type and co-rotating vane type) with a height of 20% of the thickness of the incoming boundary layer is installed upstream of a convex corner. The surface pressure distributions are similar regardless of the presence of MVGs. They show mild upstream expansion, a strong favorable pressure gradient near the corner’s apex and downstream compression. A corrugated surface oil flow pattern is observed in the presence of MVGs and there is an onset of compression moving downstream. The counter-rotating vane type MVGs produce a greater reduction in peak pressure fluctuations and the ramp type decreases the separation length. The presence of MVGs stabilizes the shock and shock oscillation is damped.
