Abstract:

An experimental and theoretical investigation of the laminar heat transfer downstream of a sharp convex corner is presented. The flow field in the region of the discontinuity is divided into two parts the flow field upstream of the discontinuity, obtained from standard viscous and inviscid techniques, and the flow immediately downstream of the sharp discontinuity, obtained by expanding both the supersonic and subsonic flow fields upstream of the discontinuity inviscidly around the corner. Downstream of the discontinuity the flow is represented by a viscous non-similar sublayer which starts at the discontinuity, and by a viscous shear layer at the outer edge which has the inviscid profiles immediately downstream of the discontinuity as initial conditions. The boundary conditions for the viscous sublayer at the outer edge are defined by the shear viscous layer. Author
