Abstract : The topics discussed were focused around the following questions: (1) How steady is the separation and reattachment process and how far should theories take account of possible unsteadiness; (2) How valid are the approximations inherent in the boundary layer equations in regions of separation and reattachment; (3) What work is in progress on the turbulent mixing coefficient and how useful or even valid is the concept of such a coefficient; (4) What are the more promising developments in methods for tackling the reattachment problem, and what are the main theoretical and experimental difficulties; (5) What are the factors that limit the present understanding of the effects of Reynolds number on base pressure.
