Abstract:

The experimental investigation of the effect of a winglet on the spatial vortex of a slender body at a high angle of attack is presented. This investigation clearly shows that the circulation of the body vortex is minimized by the winglet and the vortex position is lower than that without the winglet, so that the asymmetric problem can be solved.
