The investigation was concerned with two problems. The first problem was that of modeling the flow downstream from a two-dimensional hill in a wind tunnel. It is shown that this is entirely feasible since the momentum equation and the velocity distributions are described by the same set of parameters. Since the modeling ignored essentially the turbulence characteristics, except in as far as they are reflected in the mean flow parameters, it is not clear how diffusion processes would model. This aspect of the problem will be covered most extensively in the continuation of the program. The second problem concerned the prediction of velocity distributions downstream from a two-dimensional hill on the basis of knowledge of the hill geometry and of the undisturbed boundary layer.
