Abstract:

The report presents results of exact, full three-dimensional solutions of the incompressible laminar boundary layer over a prolate spheroid at an extremely high incidence. In contrast to the high incidence 30 degrees case recently reported, this extremely high incidence 45 degrees problem is characterized by features reflecting the predominance of the circumferential flow over the meridional flow and, more importantly, by a closed, rather than an open, separation pattern. These features include much larger circumferential skin friction than meridional skin friction and that the limiting streamlines are more closely oriented along the parallels. Author
