The idea behind this work comes from the question: What is the impact of plate corrugations on drag? In this context, a numerical study of laminar incompressible flow over a flat plate and over corrugated plates is carried out. Numerical analysis is performed for low Reynolds numbers (Re= 10, Re = 50, Re = 100, Re = 500, Re =1000) using the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software ANSYS FLUENT. Simulations results are compared to each others and with those of the reference plate (flat plate
