A380 Wake Vortex Measurements at Tarbes Airport in October 2014

Full text not available from this repository.


During September and October 2014 a field measurement campaign was accomplished that investigated the characteristics of the wake vortices generated by the A380 aircraft during approach to Tarbes airport. Wake vortices of the A380 flying at a nominal flight altitude of 80 m were measured by a 2 m pulsed wind lidar. Suitable measurement periods with low winds, turbulence and thermal stratification were determined employing a dedicated numerical weather prediction set up for the Tarbes airport. Vertical profiles of the prevailing environmental conditions were gathered employing a SODAR/RASS system and an ultrasonic anemometer mounted on a 10 m mast.
