Modelling and design of advanced wing tip devices

Objective

To maintain growth of the European commercial aircraft industry new, more efficient, environmentally friendly aircraft products must be launched over the next decade and existing products upgraded. Advanced wing tip devices have been identified as a technology that can deliver benefits in reducing emissions and community noise by improving aircraft efficiency at all phases of a flight. Such a technology can be retrofitted on existing aircraft products with relatively little cost. The project M-DAW is concerned with understanding the aerodynamics of conventional wing tip devices and exploiting this to design and assess novel devices through the use of advanced CFD methods. The most promising novel design will then be demonstrated by wind tunnel testing to determine the benefit on future aircraft products.
