Book Description:

This is an excellent book on the important subject of reducing the frictional resistance of marine vessels. The principal techniques considered include aerating the surface with small bubbles and the use of textured surfaces which trap minute pockets of air. In both cases, the aim is to unset the surface and thereby eliminate to some extent the traditional boundary layer in the water. Frictional resistance is a major component of the overall drag budget; as a consequence, this book is a valuable contribution to the field. The book is highly recommended because the two authors are world leaders in the area of drag reduction. Larry
