Abstract : This article reviews the course of the development of research relating to flat plate type turbulence control devices or plate manipulators. It sets up, on the foundation of our own flow visualizations or displays, a proposal for a new drag reduction mechanism. It refines designs, and, in conjunction with that, achieves relatively good drag reduction results. (AN)
