...E. L. Amromin; B. Metcalf; G. Karafiath Friction on a surface covered by an air cavity is much less than friction in water but there is a resistance penalty caused by the cavity tail oscillations. Nevertheless, there is a method for designing the ship bottom form for suppressing these oscillations...

.... A stress limiter in the form of Durbin’s T -limit modification for eddy-viscosity models is implemented for the k − ω model, and its effect on the computed surface pressures, skin friction, and surface flow features is assessed. Additionally, the effect of the T -limit modification on both the mean flow...

Numerical results reveal that the compressibility effect increases the velocity gradient near the wall and the friction factor. On the other hand, the increment of velocity gradient near the wall leads...
