BOUNDARY LAYERS

Boundary Layer Approximation

Viscous effects confined to within some finite area near the boundary → boundary layer

In unsteady viscous flows at low Re (impulsively started plate) the boundary layer thickness δgrows with time

In periodic flows, it remains constant

Can derive δfrom Navier-Stokes equation:

Within δ:

Will now simplify momentum equations within δ

The behavior of w within δ can be derived from continuity:

Assuming that pressure forces are of the order of inertial forces:

Boundary layers

Nondimensional variables in the boundary layer

(to eliminate small terms in momentum equation):

The complete equations of motion in the boundary layer in terms of these nondimensional variables:

Another measure of the boundary layer thickness

Displacement Thickness δ*

Distance by which the boundary would need to be displaced in a hypothetical frictionless flow so as to maintain the same mass flux as in the actual flow

Boundary layers

Another measure of the boundary layer thickness

Momentum Thickness θ

Determined from the total momentum in the fluid, rather than the total mass, as in the case of δ*

Momentum flux = velocity times mass flux rate

Momentum flux

across B


Boundary layers

The loss of momentum caused by the boundary layer is then the difference of the momentum flux between A and B:

Replaced H by ∞ because

u = U for z > H
