I've never heard of the trailing wedge, but will try to find something in my books. Have you tried Google ?

The idea is to induce trailing edge loading, which offloads the front part of the airfoil and decreases shock strength. The concept is used on the MD11 trailing edge and has been tested on a 747.

I imagine it will become standard on the 787 and all other new airliner models, or is it a proprietary Boeing thing?
