Wake vortex characterization and control (C-WAKE)

Objective

The wake Vortex issue has aroused widespread interest, not only in the aviation community buy also in the general public. The main reason was a growing safety concern over potential hazards created by a "Very Large Transport Aircraft" (VLTA), a novel airplane now on the drawing boards in Europe and the US and likely to enter airline service within the next decade. While the origin of wake turbulence is generally recognized, its physical characteristics in space and time continues to be insufficiently understood. As a result of the insufficient knowledge in wake characterization, its logical follow-on step is also lacking, that of wake control. Industry and authorities alike are pressing hard for progress to accelerate in this field, the industry to maintain competitiveness and growth, the authorities to assure high standards of safety. This C-Wake project is designed to address one of the most urgent topics in the field of Wake Vortices, that of Wake Vortex Characterization and Control.
