We demonstrate the feasibility of linear feedback control to stabilize the vortex shedding behind twin cylinders using cylinder rotation. Our approach is to use linear feedback control theory to stabilize the steady-state solution and apply this control to the nonlinear Navier-Stokes equations.

In this talk we discuss some mathematical and computational problems that arise in the design and control of fluid and thermal fluid systems. We present some applications that have not received wide attention in the PDE control community, provide examples to highlight some technical issues and then focus on a special class thermal fluid systems that occur in aircraft environmental control systems. These application areas offer enormous opportunities for researchers interested in distributed parameter control.
