This report results from a contract tasking Technion - Israel Institute of Science and Technology as follows The Grantee will investigate methods to improve the rapid aerodynamic prediction of configurations that feature strakes instead of conventional wings. The longitudinal characteristics of body-strake configurations will be estimated using a hybrid approach that will consider two contributions. 1 The linear potential contribution will be estimated 2 The nonlinear contribution of the whole configuration will be estimated based on cross-flow methods. Analytical results will be generated for five baseline configurations and compared with experimental data.
