Computational Vortex Flow Aerodynamics,
NATIONAL AEROSPACE LAB AMSTERDAM (NETHERLANDS)
A review is presented of computational methods for the determination of the characteristics of vortical type flows occurring in aircraft aerodynamics The review covers primarily computational methods for computing the downstream development of vortex wakes and methods for computing the characteristics of configurations with leading-edge and strake vortices. The various computational methods in use at present are discussed in some detail. The possibilities and limitations of the methods are indicated and results of different methods are compared and discussed. Prospects for improving existing computational methods and promising new developments are identified. Author
