Perspectives of Hydrodynamic Drag Reduction Methods

Yu. N. Savchenko
Institute of Hydromechanics of National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Kyiv, Ukraine

ABSTRACT

A brief review of some publications on the research of the hydrodynamic drag reduction, which was initiated in USSR and was further developed in the post-Soviet independent states, is given in this paper. Methods of action on the boundary layer, use of the MHD-effects, reduction of the wave drag and shape drag are considered. Possible ways of further development of the hydrodynamic drag reduction methods and their feasible application on water transport are analyzed.
