Abstract : The Propulsion and Energetics Panel Symposium on Advanced Aero-Engine Concepts and Controls was held from 25-29 September 1995 in Seattle, USA. It dealt with propulsion, including thrust vectoring, for future combat aircraft, vertical landing aircraft and transport aircraft. Better fuel efficiency, longer range and higher operational flexibility will be gained from aero engines with advanced cycles which require improvements in fluid dynamics, materials and cooling. Five Sessions (37 papers including the keynote): Engine research and demonstration, requirements and programmes (3); Aircraft engine integration (5); Propulsion system and component technology (10); Engine control systems (13); Integrated flight and propulsion control (5). Dual use application of results is intended.
