Abstract
Fluidic-based Aerodynamic Modification (FAM) is a fundamentally different approach; instead of adjusting the solid material to improve the aerodynamic `shape' of the structure, fluid-based flow control is used to manipulate the boundary layer charac-teristics. The local flow field is modified to `view' the solid as a different shape, and thus, that solid will experience reduced loads.
