Abstract

Wake-vortex advisory systems and modifications of ATC procedures that aim at increasing airport capacity without compromising safety have been developed in recent years. Prior to the introduction of such systems the associated risks must be assessed. The WakeScene (Wake Vortex Scenarios Simulation) Package allows to assess the encounter probability behind different wake-vortex generating aircraft during approach and landing. WakeScene consists of modules that model traffic mix, aircraft trajectories, meteorological conditions, wake vortex evolution, and potential hazard area. This manuscript introduces the operating sequence of WakeScene, the employed sub-models and data bases, the simulation environment and evaluation tools together with the so far accomplished validation work. Examples of WakeScene applications and an outlook on further developments of the software package conclude the report.
