Pagination or Media Count:
This report consists of 32 papers which review related problems, experiences and advancements in aeronautical and maritime fluid dynamics through the use of water facilities. There has been an increasing use of water facilities for aerodynamic investigations. These include water tunnels, towing channels and stationary tanks. Examples include basic research problems as well as flow fields around fighter aircraft, inlet flows, recirculation flow patterns associated with VTOL, ramjet simulation, etc. and, in general, three dimensional flows with vortices or separated regimes as prominent features. Keywords Symposia Flow separation High angle of attack Flow visualization Ducted propellers Shearflow Blunt bodies Parachutes Ram rocket combustion chamber Three dimensional laser scanning Velocimetry Image processing Wind tunnels Water tunnels Aerodynamics Hydrodynamics Hydraulic test tunnels Unsteady flow Marine propellers Vortex shedding Fluid flow Test facilities.
