Abstract:

Wake vortex groundwind and meteorological measurements obtained by DOT-TSC at John F. Kennedy JFK International Airport have been reduced, analyzed, and correlated with a theoretical vortex transport model. The predictive Wake Vortex Transport Model has been updated so that detailed on-site meteorological measurements can be interpreted and utilized to predict more accurately the vortex transport and decay characteristics. A discussion of the wake vortex test data analysis and software development is presented, including a description of the JFK wake vortex test program, the computer processing of wake vortex measurements, the analysis of groundwind sensor measurements, and the analysis of meteorological measurements.
