A leading edge flap (16) for supersonic transport airplanes is disclosed. In its stowed position, the leading edge flap forms the lower surface of the wing leading edge up to the horizontal center of the leading edge radius. For low speed operation, the vortex leading edge flap moves forward and rotates down. The upward curve of the flap leading edge triggers flow separation on the flap and rotational flow on the upper surface of the flap (vortex). The rounded shape of the upper fixed leading edge provides the conditions for a controlled reattachment of ...
A leading edge flap assembly for connection to the forward spar of an airplane wing, the leading edge flap assembly comprising: (a) a fixed leading edge panel, having an upper surface curving convexly downward to form a downwardly curved forward edge, and a trailing edge adapted for connection to the forward spar of an airplane wing; (b) a flap panel, having a lower surface curving convexly upward to form an upwardly curved forward edge; and (c) an actuation mechanism for connecting the flap panel to the fixed leading edge panel and moving the flap panel...
