Personally, after reading about all the literature I could find on this, I think many are expecting too much here. A 5% increase in any fuel economy or performance would be far above expectations as I see it. Besides, I'm always suspicious when academia is looking for big Government contracts.

Basically I don't see anything really changing. For aircraft, perhaps a more accurate mathematical solution on the drawing board would simply reduce fine tuning time in the wind tunnel.
For automobiles, correct me if I'm wrong. In the future we're all going to be driving cars that are round and have a nipple on the front and one on the rear.
Ah, Now at last, we find that Clem, Henry, J.M. Peter and Jacob Studebaker were much before their time.
As for golf balls, they probably won't putt too well.
