Abstract

A model for minimizing the effects of skin drag and pressure drag is constructed. We show that a simple scaling technique can be used to transform a dual, constrained minimization problem into a volume constrained surface area minimization. We discuss some successes and failures with implementing numerical methods for the problem.
