Abstract:

The report deals with a new method of calculation of coupled skin friction and heat transfer in two-dimensional turbulent boundary layers and also with the calculation of axisymmetric and three-dimensional turbulent skin friction. It is based upon an integral approach which assumes analytic law-of- the-wall velocity and temperature profiles through the boundary layer. The new theory is compared to several important experimental studies and the general agreement is good.
