Present paper deals with viscous drag reduction research in the case of bypass transition on a flat plate with textile surface. Special boundary layers such as one over a swimsuit, sail wing, or ski wear, where certain boundary layer trip structure like folded edges, or mast of the yacht exist, contain limited turbulence level in the boundary layer even in laminar condition. Turbulent transition delay in such typical boundary layers is observed in the case of the textile surface.
