Swirl chamber losses due to friction at the face walls
Abstract
The first integrals of the boundary layer equations for an incompressible fluid in a swirl chamber are obtained, using the Kantorovich method. The friction losses are determined, assuming that the turbulent analog of the kinematic viscosity coefficient is constant throughout the flow. The velocity distribution in the boundary layer is computed.
