    The present study involves the application of a Pressure-Sensitive Paint (Tris-Bathophen- anthroline Ruthenium Perchlorate), incorporated in a recipe developed in-house at Aero-Physics Laboratory (APL) based in The University of Manchester, to three separate ex- perimental setups. The first is to map the flow field on the sidewall of a complex geometry. This model is divided into three main sections: a converging concave section, an area of uniform cross-section which leads to the third section which is bound by solid straight walls on the top and bottom surfaces. The inlet pressure was varied in the range 1 - 3 bar. The second and third cases took part in a transonic wind tunnel and are comprised of: firstly, the examination of the control effectiveness of dimples on the glancing shock wave turbulent boundary layer interaction produced by a series of hemi-cylindrically blunt fins at Mach 0.8, and secondly, the well known symmetrical diamond-wedge airfoil at Mach 1.4.
