Vorticity Modification in a Turbulent Channel Flow by Microbubble Injection Conference Paper uri icon


  • Investigation of the drag reduction phenomenon has been carried out for several years. Several techniques to reduce the drag have been applied and researched for a number of years. Microbubbles injection within a turbulent boundary layer is one method utilized to achieve reduction of drag. In this work, the effects of the presence of microbubbles in the boundary layer of a turbulent channel flow are discussed.
