The art and science of flow controlThe ability to actively or passively manipulate a flow field to effect a desired change is of immense technological importance. In this article, methods of control to achieve transition delay, separation postponement, lift enhancement, drag reduction, turbulence augmentation, or noise suppression are considered. Emphasis is placed on external boundary-layer flows although applicability of some of the methods reviewed for internal flows will be mentioned. Attempts will be made to present a unified view of the different methods of control to achieve a variety of end results. Performance penalties associated with a particular method such as cost, complexity, or trade-off will be elaborated.
