This book presents contributions to
the 19th biannual symposium of the German Aerospace Aerodynamics Association
(STAB) and the German Society for Aeronautics and Astronautics (DGLR). The
individual chapters reflect ongoing research conducted by the STAB members in
the field of numerical and experimental fluid mechanics and aerodynamics,
mainly for (but not limited to) aerospace applications, and cover both
nationally and EC-funded projects. Special emphasis is given to collaborative
research projects conducted by German scientists and engineers from
universities, research-establishments and industries. By addressing a number of
cutting-edge applications, together with the relevant physical and mathematics
fundamentals, the book provides readers with a comprehensive overview of the
current research work in the field. Though the book’s primary emphasis is on
the aerospace context, it also addresses further important applications, e.g.
in ground transportation and energy.
