5 Laminar External Flow 5.1 the Boundary Layer

    Abstract

    A boundary layer is an easy physical concept to grasp; it is the result of the no–slip boundary condition as fluid flows over the surface of an object. Because of viscosity, the fluid directly adjacent to the object is sheared, and this effect is confined to a relatively thin layer parallel to the surface, i.e., the boundary layer. A boundary layer is also… (More)
