dc.description.abstract The present project emerges to provide a further development to the numerical an theoretical study on the aerodynamics of delta wings. The study is focused on the analysis of the rolling up of detached vortex sheets on the upper surface of a delta wing. First, the problem is introduced, describing the geometry used for the simulations. Then, the numerical approach is explained, giving details on the construction of the sheet of vortices that model the primary vortices that are created above the wing. In this section, the application of Kutta-Joukowski condition is explained. Also the procedure followed to build the vortices that roll up above the wing is detailed. Then, the results obtained, such as the variation of the pressure over the surface and the e ect of the thickness of the wing, are described and discussed. Finally, some limitations of the present study and further improvements are presented.
