Abstract:

Detailed measurements of pressure distributions, mean velocity profiles and Reynolds stresses were made in the thick incompressible axisymmetric turbulent boundary layer near the tail of a body of revolution. The results indicate a number of important differences between the behavior of a thick and a thin boundary layer. Significant variations of static pressure and a low level of turbulence are noted. Thus in order to predict the behavior of the flow in the tail region of a body of revolution it does not appear possible to use conventional thin-boundary-layer calculation procedures.
