Wake Vortex Encounter Detection and Severity Assessment from Flight Data
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Hazards associated to Wake Vortex Encounters (WVE) are increasing with the growing traffic and the appearance of super heavy aircrafts such as the A380. The project comes with the need from airports and airlines to clearly analyze the phenomenon by detecting WVE and quantifying their strength from Flight Data Recorder data. A tool is developed with this purpose using Roll Control Ratio as severity metric. Flight data from flight simulator are used for first analyses. The obtained results are encouraging and enable proposed improvements and consideration to further work.
