The enormous increase in the price of oil that occurred in13; 1973 has changed the priorities for aeronautical research in a very significant way. While before that date fuel costs accounted typically for about 20 per cent of the operating cost of an airline, the fraction now is of the order of 60 per cent. Energy efficiency has therefore become a major goal in aeronautical technology. Although this can be influenced by developments in a variety of areas such as new materials, engines and propellers, our concern in this lecture will be those developments in aeronautical fluid dynamics that may contribute to improying the energy economy of aircraft.
