Abstract:

The report covers a review of the state-of-the-art of fluidics technology, particularly with respect to potential applications to naval machinery control. The discussion covers the progress of development in general terms, with specific examples of current and future developmental applications for ship propulsion systems. Conclusions cover the difficulties that have been encountered in the development of fluidic systems. These include element contamination, impedance matching, and the resulting need for trial and error system design. New concepts for unusual fluidic applications are discussed. Author
