It is always fun to see the main wing of an aircraft from inside the cabin. Did you know that there are tiny protrusions called “vortex generators” on the upper surface of the main wing? They are installed to intentionally create small air vortices (turbulences).
Just like milk turns to cream by stirring, the tiny turbulences increase viscosity of air and the air flow keeps streamlining without separating from the surface of the main wing. If air flow separated from the wing surface, larger vortices would be brought and the aircraft would stall. The vortex generators prevent it from happening by making tiny vortices.
Vortex Generators are associated with corporate onsite KAIZEN activities. KAIZEN will make “small turbulences” in corporate business, but is expected to help the big flow of the business activities align with the corporate strategy. I would suggest you to take a close look at the vortex generators in association with KAIZEN, next time you travel on an aircraft, which would be a great fun!
