Abstract : Powerplant installations involve complex flows, strongly influenced by viscous effects and often with important aerodynamic interactions between the airframe and the propulsion system. The introduction of new vehicle propulsion concepts, and new points of emphasis in aircraft and missile design requirements, provide an expanding range of aerodynamic problems which call for both experimental and theoretical study. It was the purpose of the symposium to survey the current and foreseeable aerodynamic problems in powerplant installation and to review recent work which has improved basic understanding or has enhanced prediction and design methods in this field. Since the last AGARD symposium on the subject, in September 1974, there have been many significant developments. The present symposium was organized by FDP with the active support of PEP, in order to draw in contributions from both the airframe and the engine communities and also to provide a forum in which workers in these two communities could exchange ideas and debate interface problems. The presentations were grouped into four sessions under the headings: Combat Aircraft Intakes; Afterbodies and Nozzles; Testing and Analysis Techniques; Installation Aerodynamics of Transport Aircraft. On the final afternoon the symposium concluded with a Round Table Discussion in which progress under each of the four headings was reviewed.
