THE EFFECT OF CROSSWIND ON ENGINE INGESTION DURING TAKEOFFS FROM WATER CONTAMINATED RUNWAYS
J. H. M. Gooden
Keywords: engine ingestion, water contamination, takeoffs
A method is developed for calculating the spray generated by tyres on water-contaminated runways using a droplet trajectory method. The paper deals with crosswind-effects on the spray. Crosswind may lead to high engine ingestion rates, exceeding in-flight ingestion certification limits. This may lead to engine performance decrease or even flame-out.
