Abstract: The recent advances in the area of axisymmetric body drag reduction are presented. The discussion covers: body shaping, boundary layer control and friction reducing additives techniques. Among these, the body shaping techniques and in particular the inverse problem approach are considered in detail. A case study, employing this approach, to design a low drag body of revolution for R//v equals 1 multiplied by 10**7 is given to show its effectiveness. Areas of current interest and possible enhancements to axisymmetric body design by the inverse method are discussed.
