A hard look at the problems provoked by the quest for higher speeds of underwater craft shows that they can indeed be solved in a practical manner using the knowledge and principles derived in the evolution of the science of high-speed aerodynamics. Hydrodynamic heating, turbulent heat transfer and friction, boiling and cavitation, friction reduction by additives, normal and oblique shock waves, and rocket propulsion are topics brought under discussion. Propulsion remains the prime area of future endeavor in order to achieve the speeds demanded by modern times.
