Abstract : This report consists of 32 papers which review related problems, experiences and advancements in aeronautical and maritime fluid dynamics through the use of water facilities. There has been an increasing use of water facilities for aerodynamic investigations. These include water tunnels, towing channels and stationary tanks. Examples include basic research problems as well as flow fields around fighter aircraft, inlet flows, recirculation flow patterns associated with VTOL, ramjet simulation, etc. and, in general, three dimensional flows with vortices or separated regimes as prominent features.
