Abstract : The Symposium analyzed the potential of active control technology for the performance demands of future vehicles and engines. in particular high maneuverability, lower specific fuel consumption, higher power-to-weight ratios and lower life-cycle cost. Performance, stability, control, fluid dynamics, structural and engine layout questions were dealt with in 5 keynotes and 77 papers. The following sessions were held: Boundary Layer Control, Active Flow Control of Nozzle/jet, Drag and Buffet Control, Noise Control, Vortex Control, Flight Vehicle Active Control, Smart Structures Applications, Active Control Technology For Load Alleviation, Active Elements for Structural Design, Active Materials and Applications, Applications Overview, Compressor Stall/ Surge - Measurements, Compressor Stall/Surge - Control, Combustion Instabilities - Measurements and Predictions, Combustion Instabilities - Control Fundamentals, Combustion Instabilities - Control Applications. The Symposium was organized by the Applied Vehicle Technology Panel (AVT).
