Abstract
THERE DOES NOT EXIST TODAY A UNIFIED MEANS OF EVALUATING THE VORTEX INTENSITY BEHIND COMMERCIAL JET LINERS PRIOR TO PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING AT FULLSCALE. OVER THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS, DATA AND ANALYTICAL DEVELOPMENTS HAVE PROVIDED MUCH ADDITIONAL TECHNOLOGY WHICH MAY MAKE POSSIBLE THE PREDICTION OF WAKE INTENSITY AND DECAY FROM FIRST PRINCIPLES. THE OBJECT OF THIS INVESTIGATION IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A COMPUTER CODE WHICH, WHEN VALIDATED AGAINST EXISTING DATA, CAN BE USED BY AIRFRAME MANUFACTURERS AND GOVERNMENT REGULATORS TO ASSESS THE VORTEX INTENSITY BEHIND PRESENT DAY AND FUTURE JET LINERS.
