Means are described for controlling the asymmetry of the leeside vortices developing over a pointed object placed at an angle of attack in a flowing fluid. Unlike prior art, the stagnation point controller biases the vortices at their point of origin. Resulting devices enable rapid and precise control of vortex asymmetry. The amplitude and rate of such motion is used to control the amplitude and rate of the asymmetry. Complex types of variations in asymmetry are demonstrated. The stagnation point controller is used in inventing means of controlling the y...
[ What is claimed is:] [1.] A method of imparting desired attitude control moments to an object moving through a fluid at an angle of attack of at least 10 degrees relative to the direction of motion of the object by controlling the structure of leeside vortices generated by motion of the object through the fluid, said method comprising the step of selectively displacing the stagnation point of fluid flow in the vicinity of the leading end of the object to control the point at which the vortices are generated and thus to control the structure and dynamic...
