Vertical tail buffeting is a serious multidisciplinary problem that limits the performance of twin-tail fighter aircraft. The buffet problem occurs at high angles of attack when the vortical flow breaks down ahead of the vertical tails resulting in unsteady and unbalanced pressure loads on the vertical tails. This paper describes a multidisciplinary(More)
<italic>Rendering and geometric modeling are two basic research areas for scientific data visualization and are also well-known in the established CAD/CAM-world. Several fundamental differences can be pointed out between CAD/CAM and scientific data visualization applications. As a result, a new class of rendering and geometric modeling algorithms especially(More)
The vertical tail buffet problem of fighter aircraft occurs at high angles of attack when the vortical flow breaks down ahead of the vertical tails resulting in unsteady and unbalanced pressure loads on the vertical tails. The buffet loads imposed upon the vertical tails resulted in a premature fatigue failure of the tails, and consequently limits the(More)
