The transonic flow around an elastically suspended supercritical airfoil was experimentally investigated in order to enhance knowledge of buffet boundary dependencies and the corresponding self-excited fluid?structure interaction (buffeting). For that purpose, an experimental setup was designed, manufactured, and integrated in the Trisonic Wind Tunnel Munich. The design consisted of a rigid, two-dimensional, supercritical airfoil (OAT15A) with optional pitching degree of freedom and variable torsional spring stiffness. High-speed background-oriented schlieren measurements were used to observe the shock with its dynamics, while a high-speed stereo camera setup for correlation-based deformation measurements was implemented to track the dynamics of the structural motion. Pre-buffet and buffet flows were analyzed by a continuous increase of the angle of attack. The detailed observation of the shock position with increasing angle of attack exhibited a clear effect of Mach number and pitch eigenfrequency on the buffet phenomenon. The corresponding onset boundary clearly shifted into the ?pre-buffet? regime given specific structural settings. Furthermore, the resulting fluid?structure interaction of shock and coupled pitch?heave motion showed characteristics of structural frequency lock-in for the pitch-to-buffet frequency ratios of 1.2 and the mode veering region for ratios of 1 and 0.9, indicating the transition region from fluid mode flutter to structural mode flutter.
