Winglets are used vastly in commercial jets. The main purpose of a winglet is to minimize the vortex effect forming at the tip of the wing in result to the transition between higher pressure and lower pressure. The main purpose of this project is to research, design, and test a new wing tip device that will improve the wing’s aerodynamic efficiency
