Threedimensional stripintegral method for incompressible turbulent boundary layers
Abstract
A threedimensional stripintegral method was developed to calculate incompressible turbulent boundary layers. Boussinesq assumption is used for the Reynolds stresses and the eddy viscosity is defined using the Clauser outer region model. A practical fourparameter velocity profile was formulated. Using the momentum integral equations in the streamwise and crosswise directions and two strips gives four equations to solve for four parameters: boundary layer thickness, skin friction coefficient, wall crossflow angle, and location of maximum crosswise velocity. The equations are written in nonorthogonal streamline coordinates and are solved using a RungeKutta scheme.
