Research Institution

In the proposed effort, we will develop a method to produce accurate riblet profiles in outer mold line (OML) surfaces that significantly reduce viscous drag, require little or no maintenance, are inexpensive to apply or include in production or normal maintenance, and achieve long useful life, yielding fuel cost savings and extended range for military and civilian aircraft.
