Abstract : The papers prepared for the AGARD Fluid Dynamics Panel (FDP) Symposium on Application of Direct and Large Eddy Simulation to Transition and Turbulence", which was held 18-21 April 1994 in Chania, Crete, Greece are contained in this report. In addition, a Technical Evaluator's Report aimed at assessing the success of the Symposium in meeting its objectives, and an edited transcript of the General Discussion held at the end of the meeting are also included. During the past two decades significant progress has been made in the numerical simulation of turbulent flows. Vast improvements in speed and memory size of modern supercomputers, and recent progress in simulation algorithms and parallel computation have put us on the threshold of being able to simulate flows in configurations of engineering interest. The purpose of this Symposium is to disseminate the accumulated experience in this fast moving field which can be expected to play a vital role in future aeronautical developments.
