Approximate method for calculating laminar boundary layer parameters in a diffuser
Abstract
A successive approximation technique for calculating boundary layer parameters in an axisymmetric diffuser is proposed, which provides appreciable simplifications as compared to the conventional method based on the use of Karman's integral momentum equation. The successive approximations yield the velocity distribution in the boundary layer. The velocity distribution is then used to determine the boundary layer thickness, the skinfriction stress, the flow rate of the fluid, and the point of shock separation.
