Principles of Active Flow Control is a comprehensive reference covering the theory, and computational and experimental methods used in the design of modern active flow control systems. It focuses on the integration between control theory and fluid dynamics and includes examples of practical applications of flow control techniques, particularly as applied to aerospace engineering systems.

It begins with an overview of flow control and discusses the principles of actuator and sensor design, before presenting the basics of digital signal acquisition relevant for flow control applications. Open and closed loop control techniques, and performance limitations are covered, and finally flow control during non-periodic, transient flow conditions and system level benefits from component level flow control are considered.
