Abstract : This volume contains the 17 papers presented at the AGARD Fluid Dynamics Panel (FDP) Specialists' Meeting on Manoeuvring Aerodynamics held 1st- 2nd May 1991 in Toulouse, France. In addition to these papers, the general discussion held at the end of the meeting and the Technical Evaluation Report are included in this document. This FDP sponsored meeting and document reflect the growing interest in rapid, large-amplitude manoeuvres of aircraft at high angles of attack and highlights the importance of the unsteady, separated, vortical and often non-linear characteristics of the aerodynamic flows that exist under such conditions. Developments in pertinent experimental techniques, relevant aerodynamic data and their applications to flight behaviour predictions, importance of time lags, methods for forebody vortex control, and flight tests of the X-31A aircraft are among the topics discussed.
