This bibliography on skin friction reduction with boundary-layer additives including polymers, surfactants, disoaps, micelles, and particulates, covers over a seventy-year period from 1922 through 1994. Although the emphasis in this bibliography is on the fluid mechanics associated with alterations in boundary-layer momentum transfer, complementary studies on boundary-layer heat and mass transfer are also inlcuded. The emphasis in this bibliography is on turbulent flows for a wide variety of configurations and conditions, however, some publications on transitional and laminar flows have also been included for completeness. Over 4,900 publications are included in this sizable bibliography.
