Class Information
Number: 244/199.1
Name: Aeronautics > Aircraft sustentation > Sustaining airfoils > With lift modification > By vortex control outside of boundary layer
Description: Subject matter in which the airfoil comprises or includes airflow modification means designed to create or disperse a swirling air flow, this flow either circulating about the surface of the airfoil outside of the boundary layer or flowing toward or away from the surface of the airfoil to effect changes in the lift of the airfoil.
