Air lubrication technology: Past, present and future

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeConference contributionScientificpeer-review

Abstract

This paper presents the span from the historical roots and background of air lubrication to actual research project results derived from full-scale demonstrators or as expected from the EcoLiner currently being under construction. Three techniques are discussed: Air Cavity Ships, Air-film and (micro-)bubble drag reduction.
