Enhancing Scramjet Performance By Boundary Layer Combustion (2006–2008)

We aim to reduce the aerodynamic drag of high-speed flight vehicles. A major impediment to achieving hypersonic flight is the high level of frictional forces that typically account for half the aerodynamic drag of the vehicle. A novel technique for reducing frictional drag has recently been proposed and tested in Australia. Boundary layers are ''
