چکیده:

The drag coefficients on discs rotating in a cylindrical tank has studied in relation to the nature of a composite coating attached to the underside of the disc, and direct comparisons were made with refrence discs of identical geometry which were completely rigid. The composite coating was formed by: (1) bondig of velvet fabric to the metal discwith velour face outward, (2) casting a premixed silicone composition over the velvet
fabric, (3) covering the silicone layer with a thin, stiff polymer film.As a result of the tests in certain cases drag coefficient was reduced by 20% or more as compared to refrence rigid discs. Two conclusions are possible: (1)True reduction of energy exchange in the turbulent boundary layer was achived, perhaps by damping of the turbulent bursting process ; (2) A significant increase in the laminar region at the center of disc was obtainded (transition of laminar to turbulent delayed). The stiffness of the top film influenced the performance of the coating. The change of drag
coefficient of discs to be strongly influenced by the dynamic mechanical properties of the silicone elastomer network. In the next experiments, was observed that cavitation at rotatinge disc in the cylinder tank and also hydrofoil in water tunnel, both with compliant coating, was incepted
later as compared with identical reference solid that.
