Advances in Optimal and Feedback Control of Fluid Flows (Part I of III)

4:30 PM-7:00 PM
Jacksonville A&B

In recent years, substantial progress has been made in the modeling, analysis and computation of optimal and feedback control synthesis for fluid flows. These developments have the potential to impact a number of domestic and defense industries. This symposium will feature new trends and recent advances in state of the art theory, algorithms and simulation in flow control.

The speakers will discuss control problems arising from viscous laminar flows to turbulent flows, shape optimization, stabilization, combustion control, boundary layer control, numerical simulation and numerical optimization.

See Part II, MS19 and Part III, MS25.
