Bringing together for the first time in the English language a wealth of Eastern and Western research and practical developments, Wake Vortex Control addresses the challenging issue of wake turbulence and its management. Covering relevant theoretical background, past work and modeling techniques alongside regulatory frameworks and operational issues, the book takes an interdisciplinary approach and highlights essential research that has moved the field forward. Critically, it considers in detail the design implications of wake vortex, promoting an approach that sees low wake vortex wing development taken into account in the early stages of aircraft design. Featuring examples of current control techniques and practical design advice, Wake Vortex Control will help researchers, engineers and designers to move closer towards aircraft optimization for maximum performance and minimum wake hazard.
