Abstract : Recent research progress on this multi-investigator program in unsteady seperated flows is summarized. Specific projects reviewed include: (a) oscillating airfoil dynamic stall; (b) vortex entrapment and stability analysis; and (c) natural flight lift mechanisms. Research is continued under AFOSR contract F49620-83-K-0009. (Author)
