Transition And Turbulence Control
This volume contains articles based on lectures given at the Workshop on Transition and Turbulence Control, hosted by the Institute for Mathematical Sciences, National University of Singapore, 8-10 December 2004. The lecturers included 13 of the world’s foremost experts in the control of transitioning and turbulent flows. The chapters cover a wide range of subjects in the broad area of flow control, and will be useful to researchers working in this area in academia, government laboratories and industry. The coverage includes control theory, passive, active and reactive methods for controlling transitional and turbulent wall-bounded flows, noise suppression and mixing enhancement of supersonic turbulent jets, compliant coatings, modern flow diagnostic systems, and swept wing instabilities.Contents:Modeling Transition: New Scenarios, System Sensitivity and Feedback Control (J A Burns & J R Singler)Dynamics of Transitional Boundary Layers (C Lee & S Chen)Continuous Mode Transition (P Durbin & T Zaki)Transition in Wall-Bounded Shear Flows: The Role of Modern Stability Theory (P J Schmid)A Framework for Control of Fluid Flow (A Guégan et al.)Instabilities Near the Attachment-Line of Swept Wings (J Sesterhenn & R Friedrich)Experimental Study of Wall Turbulence: Implications for Control (I Marusic & N Hutchins)Turbulent Boundary Layers and Their Control: Quantitative Flow Visualization Results (M Onorato et al.)Mean-Momentum Balance: Implications for Wall-Turbulence Control (J Klewicki)The FIK Identity and Its Implication for Turbulent Skin Friction Control (N Kasagi & K Fukagata)Control of Turbulent Flows Using Lorentz Force Actuation (K S Breuer)Compliant Coatings: The Simpler Alternative (M Gad-el-Hak)Noise Suppression and Mixing Enhancement of Compressible Turbulent Jets (D Papamoschou)Readership: Graduate students, researchers in academia, government laboratories and industry, flow control practitioners in the aerospace, automotive, chemical and computer industries, as well as aerospace, mechanical, ocean, chemical, and civil engineers.
