A device for enhancing the lift capability of an aircraft wing is characterized by at least one forwardly projecting finger member mounted on the leading edge of the wing. The finger generates counter-rotating vortices, each in contact with the other, trailing backwardly across the upper surface of the wing behind the fingers as the airflow moves upwardly and around the lateral edges of the finger. As the counter-rotating vortices trail backwardly over the upper surface of the wing, a blockage effect is created and the airflow patterns across the wing ar...
Apparatus for increasing the lift generated by a wing, having upper and lower surfaces, while propelled through a fluid medium comprising: a finger mounted adjacent to the leading edge of said wing and extending forwardly therefrom such that the finger is essentially tangential to the upper surface of said wing, said finger having lateral edges thereon; said finger being mounted on the wing such that as the wing is propelled through the fluid medium, impingement of the fluid medium on said finger produces by flow around said lateral edges, a first and se...
