I saw the news below and my mind started wondering...
Is there any applicability of this to foiling?
My understanding is that "super-cavitation" starts at about 70km/hour.
But if somehow, we were able to pump air from inside the wing to envelope it in bubbles, would that help to start going sooner? Just a crazy idea..
Please those who understand fluid mechanics of this science, maybe you can explain why this would not work or maybe why it would? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supercavitationhttp://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2734072/Shaghai-San-Francisco-100-minutes-China-reveals-plans-supersonic-submarine-using-underwater-bubble-help-swim-faster.html
