Boundary Layer Flow over Elastic Surfaces by Viktor V Babenko

By Viktor V Babenko

While different equipment of drag relief are recognized in marine R&D and send layout environments all over the world, compliant coating drag aid continues to be much less famous and poorly understood. this crucial publication offers state-of-the-art recommendations and findings from learn assets no longer usually available via Western researchers and engineers, helping the appliance and extra improvement of this almost certainly very important technology.

Beginning with an creation to tug relief that areas the authors’ paintings on elastic surfaces and mixed suggestions in context, the publication strikes directly to offer a entire examine of drag relief via elastic coating with either circulate and fabric homes thought of. assurance includes:

  • Experimental findings round coherent vortical constructions (CVS) in turbulent boundary layers and strategies of controlling them
  • Static and dynamic mechanical features of elastic composite coatings, in addition to new options and units built for his or her measurement
  • Combined tools of move regulate and drag aid, together with the impact of injection of polymer options, elastic coatings and generated longitudinal vortical constructions on hydrodynamic resistance

Intended as a reference for senior engineers and researchers interested by the drag aid and the dynamics of turbulent boundary layer flows, Boundary Layer move over Elastic Surfaces offers a special resource of data on compliant floor drag relief and the experimental suggestions round it that experience proven measurable and repeatable advancements over fresh years.

This compilation of study findings and new innovations built for dimension will reduction R&D engineers, naval architects and senior designers of their quest to accomplish drag discounts that would bring major potency savings.

  • Unique resource of knowledge on compliant floor drag reduction―an vital sector of know-how with sensible program to ships―from in a different way inaccessible learn studies
  • Updates the knowledge-base on boundary layer move and floor friction aid, serious themes within the international quest for elevated send potency and gas economy
  • Reveals new innovations and units constructed for dimension and offers a accomplished research of drag relief via elastic coating with either circulation and fabric homes covered

Example text

354À356] describes the results of Japanese research on the transportation of ceramic balls in a vortical tube. The results of research on flow in a system of “liquidÀgas” inside a vortical chamber are presented in [98]. In some 18 Chapter 1 cases, as in [98], the investigation of characteristics of vortices on the end walls of a vortical chamber is of special interes. The shape of these vortices is similar to that observed on a rotating disk. The characteristic shape of vortices on a rotating disk has a helicoid shape, and the structure of vortices can be laminar or turbulent, depending on Reynolds number.

Thus, the surface was permeable, which reduced the velocity pulsations in the near-wall region of the turbulent boundary layer. In [163], the plate had rows of round cavities covered with a film. Periodical pressure was generated inside the cavities and the surface periodically vibrated. The device in [240] had rows of open cylindrical cavities and plates like LEBU installed either above cavities or above the surface between cavities. Methods of Controlling CVSs Generated behind a Prominence In [522] vortices behind a prominence mounted transversally were controlled with straight or oblique slots in the top of the prominence.

Various designs have been developed where ducts connect zones of underpressure behind redans with atmosphere. As a result, air is sucked from the atmosphere and separation bubbles grow. Juts in the form of half-cones are established on the streamline surface [378]. The apertures of the cone-faces are connected with the atmosphere. Longitudinal rows of bubbles appear as a result. Methods of CVS Control in Corners Various methods of control for this type of CVS are known. The most widespread is the use of a design of fairing the corners of which are rounded.
