Turbulent skin-friction drag reduction


The SIG focuses on emerging turbulent skin-friction reduction techniques, including passive and active methods of surface modification, hydrophobic/super-hydrophobic surfaces and polymer and surfactant additives. Special attention will be paid to the question of practical feasibility of the techniques as well as drag-reduction mechanisms, aiming at achieving synergy between various approaches.
