• Nonlinear evolution of harmonically forced perturbations on a wingtip vortex 

      García-Ortiz, José Hermenegildo; Parras, Luis; Diamessis, Peter J.; Del Pino, Carlos (2016-09-19)
      Wingtip vortices are created by flying airplanes due to lift generation. The vortex interaction with the trailing aircraft has sparked researchers’ interest to develop an efficient technique to destroy these vortices. ...
    • On the optimaL response of q-vortex 

      Rodríguez-García, Jesús Óscar; Blanco-Rodríguez, Francisco; Parras, Luis; Del Pino, Carlos (2016-09-19)
      Wingtip vortices represent a hazard for the stability of the following airplane in airport highways. These flows have been usually modeled as swirling jets/wakes, which are known to be highly unstable and susceptible to ...
    • Wingtip vortex in a NACA0012 airfoil and its active control 

      García-Ortiz, J. Hermenegildo; Blanco-Rodríguez, F. J.; Parras, Luis; Del Pino, Carlos (2015-09-09)
      We conduct experiments in a towing-tank to analyse the flow patterns of wingtip vortices in a NACA 0012 airfoil. In this experimental research, we provide PIV measurements and flow visualisations. Without active control, ...
