Wall-bounded turbulence emerges e.g. along the surface of moving ships and airplanes or in pipelines. The prediction of skin friction and drag is directly related to fuel consumption or the power needed to transport gases through pipelines, thereby emphasizing the practical relevance of wall turbulence.
