Shark Skin-Inspired Designs Improve Aerodynamic Performance

February 7, 2018

George Lauder has teamed with Harvard engineers and colleagues from the University of South Carolina to find a bioinspired structure that could improve aerodynamic performance of airplanes, wind turbines, drones, and cars. The study, published in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface, looked at sharkskin denticles (thousands and thousands of small scales) to determine a decades-old mystery of...
