Abstract: One of the governing sources of energy loss in a modern day jet engine is attributed to surfacedrag. This energy loss can be divided into friction loss and to surface geometry loss. Thefriction loss is the shear stress the fluid experience due to a no slip condition at the wall, whilethe surface geometry loss is due to pressure drop when the fuel passes an obstacle.The objective of this work is to study the drag coefficient of a plate for different types ofmilled tracks and for different kinds of flow conditions. The theories used to calculate thedrag coefficient are based on the momentum thickness theory including shear stress- andpressure integration. The computations were carried out with ANSYS CFX assuming a ShearStress Transport
