 About the Book 

The potential benefits of realizing efficient flow-control systems range from saving billions of dollars in fuel costs for land, air and sea vehicles to achieving economically/environmentally more competitive industrial processes involving fluidMoreThe potential benefits of realizing efficient flow-control systems range from saving billions of dollars in fuel costs for land, air and sea vehicles to achieving economically/environmentally more competitive industrial processes involving fluid flows. The understanding of some basic mechanisms in free-shear and wall-bounded turbulence suggests that the taming of turbulence is possible so as to eliminate some of its deleterious effects while enhancing others. Passive as well as active, including reactive, flow-control strategies are covered. Sophisticated reactive control systems heavily relying on parallel computers are envisioned for future practical devices to improve the ability to reduce drag, increase lift, suppress flow-induced noise, enhance mixing and achieve other desired flow-control goals.
