Contribution to the theory of stationary separation areas
Abstract
An attempt is made to determine the region of existence of possible steady flows with a closed separation area in a range of Reynolds numbers such that flow in the viscous mixing area can be described by the Prandtl's equations. The boundary conditions for the flow in the separation region are selected so as to simplify the flow pattern in this region, making it possible to use the methods of hydrodynamic analysis. A rule for determining stable steady flows with separation areas is formulated which is well suited for analyzing laminar flows and can be applied to turbulent flows in some areas.
