Ronald D. Joslin manages Turbulence, Stratified Wakes, Submarine Maneuvering, and Ocean Energy Conversion Programs at the Office of Naval Research. He is the Navy Principal S&T Advisor to the DoD High Performance Computing Modernization Program Office. An Associate Fellow of AIAA, he is a former member of the AIAA Fluid Dynamics Technical Committee, and the technical chair of the 3rd AIAA Flow Control Conference. Daniel N. Miller is a Technical Fellow in air vehicle sciences and systems with the Lockheed Martin Skunk Works. He has led pioneering research and made valuable contributions in flow control, embedded propulsion, robust design, and computational fluid dynamics supporting development of major aircraft systems including the F-35, F-22, and advanced programs. He is an Associate Fellow of AIAA, co-instructor for two AIAA short courses in modern flow control, an AIAA Journal reviewer, a member of the AIAA Fluid Dynamics Technical Committee, and the technical chair of the fluid dynamics sessions at the 45th Aerospace Sciences Meeting. Lockheed Martin Corporation awarded Miller the NOVA award, its highest recognition for technical achievement.
Flow control technologies have been used in the past century to control fluid flows. This text presents the current state of the art in emerging modern flow control technologies and highlights the application of these technologies to aerospace platforms. Initial chapters introduce the fundamentals of modern flow control, including basic concepts, terminology, history, flow physics, actuators, sensors, modeling/simulation, and instability and control theories. Applications of flow control to current and next-generation air vehicle systems, including fixed wing airfoils, turbomachinery, combustion, aeroacoustics, vehicle propulsion integration, and rotorcraft are discussed. This text is an excellent introduction to the wide-ranging uses of modern flow control.
