A wing tip vortices suppressor utilizing a scoop having an inlet at the lower, leading surface of the wing and an outlet at the upper, trailing surface to reduce turbulence causing pressure differential across the wing. A turbulence fence is used at the tip to account for the frictional losses of the air flowing through the scoop and other phenomena that prevent exact pressure equilization.
A wing tip vortices suppressor which comprises: a scoop passing through the wing, with an inlet and an outlet located near the wing tip; the inlet being located in the lower surface of the wing, adjacent the leading edge, to entrain high pressure air during flight; the outlet being located in the upper surface of the wing, adjacent the trailing edge, to discharge air from the inlet; a wing tip fence positioned outboard said inlet and outlet; the fence and the scoop cooperating to suppress the vortices and reduce the pressure differential at the trailing ...
