Current airframes being already highly optimized nowadays, further aerodynamic performance improvements may only be reached by the implementation of flow manipulation techniques. The sixth issue of Aerospace Lab Journal is aimed at providing the reader with a comprehensive overview of the current developments of these methods. The papers presented successively review main aspects of flow control, both from the point of view of technology and that of the applications. Technologies consist not only in fluidic...
