The effect on the flow unsteadiness on a NACA 0015 airfoil at Reynolds number Re = 200 and Angle of Attack AoA = 18 degrees is investigated numerically. Four different geometries based on the NACA 0015 airfoil and with trailing-edge modifications are compared. Long-time integration of the incompressible two-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations shows that the recovered flow field is steady independently of the trailing-edge geometry
