European Drag Reduction and Flow Control Meeting EDRFCM 2010

2nd - 4th September 2010

Kiev, Ukraine



The European Drag Reduction and Flow Control Meetings have proven to be a very attractive series of workshops on drag reduction and flow control. They are organized by the ERCOFTAC Special Interest Group SIG20 Drag Reduction and Flow Control. Within this SIG, a coordination of experimental, numerical and analytical research into drag reduction and flow control using passive and active techniques is carried out.


• Riblets, dimpled surfaces, compliant walls, polymer and surfactant additives, wall and flow oscillations, optimal and suboptimal control, local blowing/suction, electro-magnetic control, plasma flow control, etc.

• Special sessions on plasma flow control and drag reduction by structured surfaces.
