Abstract

The WakeScene-D software package (Wake Vortex Scenarios Simulation Package for Departure) has been developed for comprehensive airspace simulations of take-off and departure. WakeScene-D consists of modules that model traffic mix, aircraft trajectories, meteorological conditions, wake vortex evolution, and potential hazard area. The software package estimates the probability to encounter wake vortices in different traffic and crosswind scenarios using Monte Carlo simulation in a domain ranging from the runway to an altitude of 3000 ft above ground. A comparison to measured vortex tracks of about 10,000 departures from runway 25R of Frankfurt airport indicates good agreement of global wake vortex transport characteristics in ground proximity. The standard departure situation employing a two-minute aircraft separation is compared to scenarios with reduced departure separations and various crosswind conditions. Comprehensive sensitivity analyses have been conducted which are briefly recapitulated. Effects related to departure route combinations and wind direction sectors are reported in more detail. Finally, an advanced scenario with an asymmetric crosswind criterion is introduced.
