Latest research has modeled the air flow around a golf ball with dimples on it – and shown how the dimples reduce drag on the ball. Here: go watch!
I wonder, though. Perhaps this technology could be extended to other areas where reduced drag might be of considerable interest? Cars, for example? Or better yet, aeroplanes?
Has there been any study on dimple dynamics on large structures? Does anyone know?
