Experimental and numerical studies have been performed to investigate the performance of a vertical gust generator in a wind tunnel. Results from both experimental Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) and those from numerical simulations of low-Mach-numberpreconditioned compressible Naiver-Stokes equations on unstructured grids using high-order spectral difference (SD) agreed reasonably well with each other. The gust was generated by ducting flow through the floor of the wind tunnel and at the wall of the numerical domain. The gust velocity profile bends downstream when interacting with freestream causing the incoming freestream flow to bend upward. The vertical gust changed the effective angle of attack over the airfoil when interacting with the freestream velocity. Due to the interaction of gust over the airfoil, the stationary airfoil at a nominal zero degree angle of attack undergo flow separation under stalled conditions.
