An aerofoil body, for example a “delta”wing aircraft, in which strip-form devices project rearwards from the trailing edge of the wing and serve to improve the lift-to-drag ratio of the body, in some conditions of flight at least, by modifying the formation of the trailing edge vortex to allow the axes of the primary vortex sheets to lie closer to the fore-and-aft centerline of the body than would otherwise be the case. When the strips are basically flat in shape, the strips may project straight backwards from the trailing edge or may be angled in variou...
An aerofoil body adapted in use for motion relative to a surrounding mass of fluid and presenting: a fore-and-aft centerline lying parallel to said motion; a trailing edge relative to said motion; at least one swept leading edge relative to said motion, said edge presenting a spanwise tip giving rise in use to a respective primary coil-form vortex sheet; a single strip-form device corresponding to each said swept leading edge, each said strip-form device being mounted on said body at a location lying directly aft of at least part of said swept leading ed...
