the region of a decelerated fluid that arises behind the body around which the fluid flows and extends for some distance. It is the boundary layer that has separated from the rear of the body.

Taking into consideration the flow in bladed disks of multistage compressors operating under conditions of periodic angular flow non-uniformity caused by disturbances created by the aerodynamic wake behind the trailing edges of blades of previous stages, it is possible to specify that the calculation pattern that corresponds to the image of non-steady flow about the compressor grid can be obtained if the values of velocities and pressures are presented in the form of the sum of steady and pulsating components:

On Wednesday's flight, F-35 Chief Test Pilot Jon Beesley climbed to 20,000 feet and performed a series of maneuvers to verify the F-35's compatibility with the KC-135's refueling boom and its aerodynamic wake.
