Drag reduction in turbulent flows over superhydrophobic surfaces


In this paper, we demonstrate that periodic, micropatterned superhydrophobic surfaces, previously noted for their ability to provide laminar flow drag reduction, are capable of reducing drag in the turbulent flow regime. Superhydrophobic surfaces contain microor nanoscale hydrophobic features which can support a shear-free air-water interface between peaks… (More)
