Control and Computational Fluid Dynamics I (Part I of III)

This symposium will focus on current trends in theoretical and computational methods in flow control. In recent years, considerable attention has been given to the modeling, analysis and computation of optimal control problems and feedback synthesis for fluid flows. The speakers will present the recent development of the theory and applications of feedback control techniques to complex technological problems and real-time control systems. They will discuss time-dependent and stationary control problems, and present recent work on control problems arising from viscous laminar flows to turbulent flows, shape optimization, stabilization, numerical simulation and numerical optimization.
