Dubious use or misuse of scientific information in commerce and policy making e.g. the swimsuit case

Onderzoeksoutput: Conference paper

Samenvatting

Regardless the active resistance data acquisation variance between the Marine Test Station (Brussels-Wageningen) data, the Swimming Flume (Stockholm) findings, the Measuring Active Drag (MAD-Amsterdam), the device for measuring active drag (DAD-Beijing) or the Velocity Perturbation Method (VPM), these approaches do not interfere with the direct obtained values of passive drag e.g. Ds versus Dp and with our laminar and turbulent flow knowledge. The aim of this project is to re-evaluate resistance data of the end of previous century in combination with interpretations of the High-Technology swimwear studies (2000-2010). Commercial justifications of Drag-versus morphology data versus the non-demensional form relation, have been ignored. The continuous body shape deformations at Ds level are subject of a violation of basic hydrodynamic reasoning. The impressive quantity of records with the High-Tech swimwear was probably a sufficient argument-even misleading-to accept all quality issues claimed by the manufacturer.
