ERCOFTAC is proud to announce a two day course on Flow Control Technologies, at UK Aerodynamics Centre in Cranfield, UK, 9-10 Dec 2013.

Flow Control is a topic that has seen tremendous technological advances, from basic measurements techniques relying on pressure sensors, to a myriad of sensing techniques underpinned by advances in material technology, viable and accurate aerodynamic analysis, which are all made tractable by the rapid advances in digital control technologies. The recent advances in sensing and control technologies will be presented, over the two days of this course, with the aim of providing a key picture of the aerodynamic flow processes governing a particular flow regime, and thus express a suite of aerodynamic-body structure motive forces that can help monitor and control the flow regime in question, with a view to improved aerodynamic load transfer and thus efficiency.


- Overview of the modern flow control techniques applicable to aeronautics

- Basic theory and applications of flow control from laminar to turbulence flows

- Review of current application of various techniques in controlling momentum, flow noise and heat transfer

- Discussion on the technology transfer issues and future progress
