Eidetics Provides Engineering Analysis to NASA-Dryden Flight Research Center, Edwards, CA


June 23, 1997 - Eidetics Corporation was contracted by NASA Dryden Flight Research Center, Edwards, CA to perform preliminary engineering analysis and cost estimation for a skin friction reduction experiment on a large passenger jet aircraft.


This effort supplements the SBIR Phase II program Reduction of Aircraft Cruise Drag by Using Boundary Layer Heating to Minimize Fuselage Skin Friction. The analysis consisted of the overall feasibility of this experiment, the estimated required heated acreage and power, the heater power sources, required instrumentation to measure the predicted drag increment, the number of required flights, and an itemized cost estimate for the complete experiment.
