Type of Event: Course, International

ERCOFTAC is proud to announce a two day course on Flow
Control Technologies, at UK Aerodynamics Centre in
Cranfield, UK, 9-10 Dec 2013.

Flow Control is a topic that has seen tremendous
technological advances, from basic measurements techniques
relying on pressure sensors, to a myriad of sensing
techniques underpinned by advances in material technology,
viable and accurate aerodynamic analysis, which are all made
tractable by the rapid advances in digital control
technologies. The recent advances in sensing and control
technologies will be presented, over the two days of this
course, with the aim of providing a key picture of the
aerodynamic flow processes governing a particular flow
regime, and thus express a suite of aerodynamic-body
structure motive forces that can help monitor and control
the flow regime in question, with a view to improved
aerodynamic load transfer and thus efficiency.
