Abstract : Progress is reported on fundamental studies in turbulence dynamics, flow control, and drag reduction. Contents: On anologies between turbulence in unconfined flows and chaotic dynamical systems; Transition and turbulence in fluid flows, and low-dimensional chaos; Chaos in open flow systems; The fractal facets of turbulence; Transition intermittency in open flows, and intermittency routes to chaos; An instability associated with a sudden expansion in a pipe flow; and On the scaling of the turbulence energy dissipation rate.
