CVG Technical Diagrams
CVG Location on Wing
This diagram illustrates CVG placement behind the slat on the wing of a B737 wing. The CVG is applied as a elastomeric adhesive backed film that is self registering to the wing location.
Streamline flow over the CVG rear face. The CVG forms a vortex that interacts with the upper flow and results in suction.
Lift / Drag Chart
The measured effect on Lift/Drag by Calvert & Wong of the U.S.Army Redstone Arsenal, as modelled on a transonic section of a UH-60 Blackhawk rotor blade. There is a severe reduction in L/D for a very small step condition.
Coefficient of Drag with CVG
Effect of the addition of a CVG to the Coefficient of Drag on a wing with a slat in transonic flight.
Performance Change Diagram
Performance change comparison on a Boeing 737 with & without CVG.
