This document explains in its first part the design procedure adopted to design the contoured sidewalls of a swept-wing airfoil section mounted in a wind tunnel in order to satisfy the infinite swept-wing approximation. In the second part, the experimental set-up is described as well as the first results of the experimental campaign. The sidewalls are shown to play their role properly and satisfactorily provide the infinite swept-wing conditions required for subsequent investigations of the most important vortex receptivity mechanisms responsible for excitation of crossflow and Tollmien-Schlichting instability modes in the airfoil boundary layer.
