The end wall boundary layer in a vortex chamber
Abstract
Hydrodynamics and heat and mass transfer of the end wall boundary layer in laminar and turbulent flow regimes were computed using a new approach for the solutions of the end wall boundary layer equations in which a 'radial' boundary layer is represented in the form of a submerged wall jet. This approach has allowed the use of the laws (Volchkov et al., 1960) that govern the development of wall jets. A set of integral momentum and energy equations was formulated and solved, and the laws governing friction, and heat and mass transfer in a spatial boundary layer formed on the end wall of the vortex chamber were derived. Analytical relationships were developed for boundarylayer parameters, including thickness, local friction, heat transfer, and gas flow rate.
