Abstract : Research studies on problems in low speed flight conducted under the THEMIS program are summarized for the period from 1 October 1967 to 31 May 1973. Results of investigations on heavily loaded ducted fans, vortex-wake analysis of a single-bladed hovering rotor, rotor blade flutter analyses, jet-in-crosswind, wall jets, and instability in tensioned sheets with cutouts are described. Lists of publications which describe the research are given and the faculty and student participation in the program is summarized. (Author)
