UNSPECIFIED. (2000) Hydrodynamics and compliant walls: Does the dolphin have a secret? CURRENT SCIENCE, 79 (6). pp. 758-765. ISSN 0011-3891Full text not available from this repository.
This paper reviews recent progress on understanding the effects of compliant walls on boundary-layer instabilities and laminar-turbulent transition, Aspects of the structure and properties of dolphin skin are also considered insofar as they have influenced the work on the hydrodynamics of compliant walls. The question of whether the work on this subject can shed any light on the supposed laminar-flow capability of dolphin skin is also examined.
