Integral analysis of boundary layer on moving wall and its application to a spinning cylinder in crossflow
Abstract
An integral method for calculating the nonsimilar twodimensional boundary layer development and separation on both upstream and downstream moving walls was developed. The integralmomentum and integralenergy boundary layer equations were integrated simultaneously by using the shape factor relationships of the movingwall similarity solutions. The technique was applied to a sourcewake boundvortex model of the inviscid flow about a spinning cylinder. Utilizing an iterative process, agreement was obtained between the separation points found by the boundary layer calculation and the locations of separation for the inviscid flow model. Lift and drag coefficients were calculated as a function of cylinder rotation rate and compared with experiment.
