In order to use this equation to estimate the boundary
layer thickness as a function of x, we must first:
Obtain a first approximation to the freestream velocity
distribution, U(x). This is determined from inviscid flow theory
(the velocity that would exist in the absence of boundary
layer) and depends on body shape.
Assume a reasonable velocity-profile shape inside the
boundary layer
Derive an expression for
0
using the result obtained from the
previous item.
Reviewing the assumptions made in the derivation, it can be seen that
the equation is:
Restricted to steady, incompressible, two-dimensional flow with no
body forces parallel to the surface.
Valid for either a laminar or turbulent boundary layer flow.
Step 1. Assume a suitable velocity profile for u(y)
inside the BL
For example, assume a linear velocity
distribution inside a BL
Determine constants A and B with the boundary
conditions as

This problem dealt with linear velocity profile as an approximate solution. The results
obtained are rough. However the exercise illustrates the use of the momentum
integral method. Practice this method with other types of approximated velocity
profile, such as parabolic, sinusoidal, etc.
One key point to remember
Be careful not to confuse the calculation for c
f
and C
f
.
c
f
is a local calculation at a particular x location
(including x=L) and can only be used to calculate local
shear stress, NOT drag force. C
f
is an integrated
average over a specified length (including any x L)
and can only be used to calculate average shear
stress and the integrated force over the length

In 1908 Blasius, a student of Prandtl, obtained an exact solution of the
following BL equations for a flat plate and demonstrated the shape of
the boundary layer profile.

TURBULENT BOUNDARY LAYER
Turbulent Boundary layers are usually thicker
than laminar ones.
Velocity distribution in a turbulent boundary
layer is much more uniform than that in a
laminar boundary layer
Large velocity change occur in a relatively small
vertical distance
Velocity gradient (dv/dy) is steeper in a turbulent
boundary layer than in laminar boundary layer

From experiments,
Velocity distribution in a turbulent boundary profile

Satisfactorily describes velocity distribution for most
of the region of turbulent boundary layer but gives
infinite slope at the wall,

FLOW SEPARATION
Flow separation is generally undesired. It reduces lift
force on an airfoil or increases drag force on a blunt
body.
Turbulent BLs are more resistive to separation
because, compared to a laminar one, in a turbulent
BL velocities close to the wall are higher.

SOLVED IN CLASS
Air enters a square duct through a 1-ft opening as is shown in
Fig. Because the boundary layer displacement thickness
increases in the direction of flow, it is necessary to increase the
cross-sectional size of the duct if a constant velocity (U=2 ft/s)
is to be maintained outside the boundary layer. Plot a graph of
the duct size, d, as a function of x for 0 x10 ft if U is to
remain constant. Assume laminar flow. [= 1.57 10
