Keywords: aerodynamics, noise, high-lift, leading-edge, slat
This study aims to exploit wing leading edge devices customarily designed for low noise during landing, to achieve higher airplane performance for takeoff. The CFD analysis indicates that at takeoff conditions properly designed slat fillers result in substantial reduction in drag. New mechanical systems for slat integration are also investigated.
