Abstract:

Computations are presented and compared with experimental data from other sources for basic and advanced problems in aircraft - wake vortex interactions. Results are presented for coalescence of corotation and counterrotating vortex groups and finally a complete high speed computer method is developed for simulating the roll reaction of an aircraft to the wake produced by a large aircraft with flaps deployed. Suggestions for improved experimental approaches are also appended. Author
