100 Top Technologies: 'Tipping the Wing' to 'Printing the Future'
from Aviation Week
The drag-reducing winglet is another aerodynamic improvement now widespread across airliner fleets. It reduces vortex-induced drag by diffusing the tip vortex flow downstream of the wingtip and increases lift at the wingtip by inhibiting the flow of higher-pressure air below the wing to lower-pressure air above.
