    How raked wingtips reduce induced drag?

    Hi all, I understand that both winglets and raked wingtips are for the same function (from what I have read) - to reduced the amount of induced drag. I understand the principles behind winglets, however I am uncertain how raked wingtips actually achieve this?

    Could anyone please explain the aerodynamics behind it. Thanks
