Abstract:

The paper presents the results of measurements of parameters of aircraft wake vortices by a Stream Line coherent Doppler lidar during the three-day experiment on the airfield of Tolmachevo Airport. We have analyzed spatial dynamics and evolution of the wake vortices generated by aircrafts of various types: from Airbus A319 passenger aircraft to heavy Boeing 747-8 cargo aircraft entering the landing at Tolmachevo airport. It is shown that Stream Line lidars may well be used to obtain reliable information about the presence and intensity of aircraft wake vortices in the vicinity of а runway.

Keywords:
