Abstract:

Research was conducted to examine two aspects of boundary layer flow 1 the influence of free-stream turbulence on zero pressure gradient, full turbulent boundary layer flow and 2 the combined effects of free-stream turbulence and favorable streamwise pressure gradients on transitional boundary layer flow. Keywords Convective heat transfer coefficients Boundary layer transition Gas turbine airfoils Boundary layer mean velocity Experimental data. edc
