Abstract:

A survey is reported of research activities on Flow Separation in Western Europe and West Berlin, made in the late summer of 1962. The major scientific countries-France, Germany, and especially England- are well aware of the importance of the problems of flow separation, and have engaged extensively in research. Model basins and hydrodynamics institutes in European countries are very much interested in the problems of flow separation, but except for the Institut fur Schiffbau der Universitat, Hamburg, and in limited scope at Skipmodelltanken, Trond heim, Norway, it is felt that no special research on this subject has been carried on. Hence, most of the work listed in the following pages was done at the aerodynamic institutes. The main emphasis in research is placed on the fields of 1 Flow Separation on Swept Wings, 2 Base Flow, 3 Interaction between Shock Wave and Boundary Layer, and 4 generalized count of Flow Separation.
