Measurement of wall shear stress in favorable pressure gradients
Abstract
A numerical technique has been developed to determine the mean wall shear stress from a single mean velocity measurement outside the socalled linear layer in turbulent flows with pressure gradients imposed. The technique was tested and apparently verified by application to measurements from two accelerating turbulent flows.
