A family of Radar energy Absorbing Deformable Low Drag Vortex Generators (RAD-LDVG) is described herein. This family of devices are fabricated in such a way that it can conform to aircraft surface features while reducing radar returns from structural details. Vortex generators (VGs) are typically used to reattach or smooth gross flowfields over aircraft surfaces. By doing so, an airfoil or wing can maintain attached flow at higher angles of attack and/or higher lift coefficients than one without the VGs. These devices are also used to reattach and/or smo...
1. A device which is shaped so as to produce stream-wise vortices when attached to a non-uniform surface exposed to airflow, comprising: a vortex generator having an upstream end and a distal downstream end, where the vortex generator has a lateral width and a vertical height and a flexible bottom surface configured to mount on the non-uniform surface exposed to airflow where the vertical height of the vortex generator is tapered to increase from the upstream end to the distal downstream end forming a concave upper surface, the concave upper surface havi...
