The effect of freestream turbulence on generation of crossflow disturbances over swept wings is investigated through direct nu- merical simulations. The set up follows the experiments performed by Downs et al. (2012). In these experiments the authors use ASU(67)-0315 wing geometry which promotes growth of crossflow disturbances. Distributed roughness elements are locally placed near the leading edge with a given spanwise wavenumber to excite the corresponding stationary crossflow vortices. In present study, we partially reproduce the isotropic homogenous freestream turbulence through direct numerical simulations using freestream spectrum data from the experiments. The generated freestream fields are then applied as the inflow boundary condition for direct numerical simulation of the wing. The distributed roughness elements are modelled through wing surface deformation and placed near the leading edge to trigger the stationary crossflow disturbances. The effects of the generated freestream turbulence on the initial amplitudes and growth of the boundary layer perturbations are then studied.
