Reprinted from a special issue of Applied Scientific Research v.50, nos. 3/4 (1993), reports recent findings on the mechanism by which riblets reduce drag during the turbulent flow of fluids. Among the topics are friction velocity and virtual origin estimates for mean velocity profiles above smooth
