About the Authors
  • The ability to actively or passively manipulate a flow field to bring about a desired change is of immense technological and economical importance. This volume provides a thorough, up-to-date treatment of the basics of flow control and control practices that can be used to produce desired effects. The author explores the frontiers of flow control strategies, especially as applied to turbulent flows. Intended for engineering and physics students, researchers, and practitioners, Flow Control brings together in a single source a wealth of state-of-the-art information on this very active field.

    • A single-authored, cohesive book on the subject
    • Includes coverage of state-of-the-art flow control systems
    • Author is widely known researcher and developer of flow control techniques
