Abstract:

The behavior of the fully rough turbulent boundary layer subjected to favorable pressure gradients was investigated experimentally using a porous test surface composed of densely packed spheres of uniform size. Measurements of profiles of mean velocity, mean temperature and the components of the Reynolds stress tensor are reported for both unblown and blown layers. Stanton numbers were determined from energy balances on the test surface and skin friction coefficients from measurements of the Reynolds shear stress and mean velocity.
