Abstract : This research project has developed methods for computational fluid dynamics and fluid-flow control. The research on computational fluid dynamics has consisted of the analysis and development of simulations and mathematical models of two-dimensional fluid motion. The control research has used a hierarchy of simulations and models t design feedback controllers for fluid flows. Both adaptive and nonadaptive controllers were developed. The research was motivated by the need to stabilize high Reynolds number flows around bodies such as delta wing aircraft.
