Dr. Sumon K. Sinha has developed a Flexible Composite Surface Deturbulator (FCSD) tape, that effectively reduces drag from air flow over surfaces. Although development is proceeding, Dr. Sinha's deturbulator has already produced 20% better performance in aircraft test flights.Who is Dick Johnson? Testing has been done independently by Dick Johnson, recognized internationally for his flight test evaluations of sailplanes since 1960. In his report (PDF) on the first deturbulated aircraft (Standard Cirrus, serial numbmber 60, tested 12/2006) Mr. Johnson said: ” The new Sinha Deturbulator could be the first really significant drag-reducing aerodynamic invention since the development of the now-common laminar-flow airfoils that were developed some 65 years ago. ” This new technology may be used to improve the efficiency of virtually any kind of body that moves through the air, most notably aircraft and motor vehicles. Tests on a passenger van that was only partially deturbulated have yielded 10-15% driving.
