Linearization of turbulent boundarylayer equations
Abstract
In previous solutions of the turbulent boundary layer equations that use the eddy viscosity concept in algebraic form, Newton's method has been applied to all terms except the viscous term, where the values of the eddy viscosity were assumed from a previous iteration. The method presently set out and evaluated was devised to allow the application of Newton's method to all terms of the momentum equation, using the eddy viscosity formulation of Cebeci and Smith (1974).
