dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this paper is to investigate the possibility of preventing boundary layer energy losses by ionizing selectively the boundary layer air. Electrostatic repulsion at the wall surface of the positive ions created in the method chosen to prevent molecular collision at the surface and the resulting energy losses. A subsonic diffuser section of deliberately poor design was the unit chosen as most suitable for testing the theory. The general method of attack was to attempt to show improved diffuser efficiency using an ionized air flow.en_US
