Abstract : A methodology has been developed for the aerodynamic flow-vectoring control of wakes on jets. Directional flow control of wakes and jets has been demonstrated without requiring any mechanical motion of the boundaries which constraint or guide the flow. The methodology is based on global instability concepts. The key to the success of this approach is to use local suction to suppress any global instability and then exploit symmetry considerations to produce proportional directional control of this flow.
