Abstract : A review of all literature published since 1964 relating to helicopter vortex systems and wake turbulence was made. The results of the review are evaluated and summarized, and conclusions are drawn relative to that review. The documents are grouped in general categories, and this is further supplemented by an annotated bibliography and authors index. Also incorporated in the review is a comparative analysis of rotary-wing versus fixed-wing circulation intensity time-history.
