Advanced boundarylayer theory in heat transfer
Abstract
Boundary layer theory as a theory to solve the NavierStokes equations for high Reynolds numbers is examined. Aspects of general asymptotic theory for small or large dimensionless parameters occurring in fluid flow and convective heat transfer problems are discussed. Then, recent developments of the asymptotic theory with respect to high Reynolds numbers are addressed for laminar as well as turbulent flows. Analytical discussions are presented for asymptotic expansions, heat transfer at high and low Prandtl numbers, powerlaw approximations, logarithmic terms in the asymptotic expansions, multilayer structure, improvement and computer extension of series expansion, twoparameter problems, variable physical properties, higherorder laminar boundary layers, the tripledeck concept for laminar boundary layers, and the asymptotic theory for the turbulent boundary layer.
