...for jet-aircraft wings. "Aerodynamically, we have resolved unknowns raised in earlier testing, and the next step is to get this into a fleet of trucks for more extensive testing, " said Robert Englar, principal research engineer in the Aerospace, Transportation and Advanced Systems Laboratory of the Georgia Tech...

In March 2005, the Virgin Atlantic turbofan-powered GlobalFlyer flew around the world nonstop, unrefueled, in 67 hours and one minute. Aerodynamics was key to GlobalFlyer's success; its configuration was optimized for range and fuel efficiency. At takeoff, the aircraft was approximately 83% fuel... project coordinator Fabrizio Lagasco. Particle image velocimetry (PIV) systems have many engineering applications, from analyzing waves caused by landslides to measuring airflow over aircraft wings. As part of the Smart-PIV project, (G ottingen, Germany), a builder of laser imaging systems,...

Transportation Safety Board. Icing affects aircraft by adding weight and, more importantly, by altering the shape, and hence the aerodynamics, of the wings. Long before pilots face the hazards of flying through icing conditions, aircraft manufacturers evaluate how icing affects the performance of the planes...

A new, multirole transporter will replace aging heavylift aircraft in military fleets. The A400 military transport plane from Airbus will have four 11,000-shp turboprops, giving it enough power to take off from short, rough landing fields (under 3,000 ft), and still carry a 20-ton payload..., which demands software. algorithms with high accuracy and full interactivity. 3D vortical flow is one such complex flow phenomenon. Specifically, when strong vortices present near an. aerodynamics body such as aircraft wings, rotor/propeller blades, or turbine cascades, strong influence...
