On the Equations of a Thick Axisymmetric Turbulent Boundary Layer.
IOWA INST OF HYDRAULIC RESEARCH IOWA CITY
Pagination or Media Count:
An examination of the Reynolds equations for axisymmetric turbulent flow where the thickness of the boundary layer is of the same order as the transverse radius of curvature of the surface shows that neither the boundary layer nor the potential flow outside it may be calculated independently of the other, owing to significant interactions between the two flow regimes. Following a discussion of various procedures for extending conventional thin boundary-layer calculation methods to treat thick axisymmetric turbulent boundary-layers, a method is proposed for the simultaneous solution of the boundary layer and the potential flow equations, allowing the two flow regimes to interact.
