Forebody Vortex Control

 

RHRC has extensive experience in forebody vortex control. Through NASA Ames, RHRC has conducted several tests to determine the effectiveness of forebody vortex control using several methods to provide increased yaw control at high angles of attack in a rotating flow field. Using a 6% scale F/A-18 model, RHRC tested different configurations of control devices, including jets, slots, single and dual rotating nose-tip strakes, and a vertical nose strake. All devices were effective at producing controlled yawing moments in both directions.
