Abstract

Using the right frequency and intensity of ultrasound, applied on the hull of a vessel, it is possible to control the onset of turbulence in the surrounding medium, such as water, or air. By such a process, the onset of turbulence may be controlled, resulting in the reduction of drag due to turbulence. In this way, it may be possible to reduce the cost of fuel to move at higher speeds. This process is based on papers written from 1995 t0 2002, in Physica D and A, written by Amador Muriel and co-workers.
