An experimental investigation was conducted to study the effects of free-stream turbulence on surface pressures on a flat plate with rectangular leading-edge geometry using turbulence-producing grids. The measured mean, standard deviation and peak pressure coefficients as well as lateral cross-correlation of fluctuating pressures are presented and discussed.
