Three-dimensional laminary flows of moist air over the 76-deg, sharp-edged single delta wing without thickness at 20.5-deg inclination in atmospheric flow conditions were calculated, and condensation in the streamwise vortex was numerically investigated. Thus, the calculated results indicated that the condensation deeply depends on atmospheric flow conditions. Onset of condensation was very sensitive to the atmospheric wind-tunnel conditions assuming homogeneous nucleation.
