How would one calculate what size and how far apart to machine some small votex generators(basically slits) in a 8" dia tueb with water moving through it at 120 mph. The thinking here is that there is some drag that can be decreadsed by creating a boundry layer on the edges. Would this not make the tube act as a smaller diameter thus decreasing volume?
