In an attempt to bring active flow control to a level of technology many fundamental issues arise. Some of these issues that we have encountered recently are discussed in the present paper. These are: the transient process of reattachment and separation, the addition or removal of mass flow and its effect on reattachment, some effects of curvature and its relation to centrifugal instability in highly turbulent flow and finally the application of active flow control at low Reynolds numbers. The first topic is discussed in most detail because of its possible application to interactive control.
