BOUNDARY LAYER

FLUID DYNAMICS:AERODYNAMICS & FLOW

HYDRODYNAMICS

Introduction

When a real fluid flows past a solid body or a solid wall, the fluid

particles adhere to the boundary and condition of no slip occurs.

This means that the velocity of fluid close to the boundary will be same as

that of the boundary.

If the boundary is stationary, the velocity of fluid at the boundary will be

zero.

Farther away from the boundary, the velocity will be higher and as a result

𝑑𝑑𝑑𝑑

of this variation, the velocity gradient will exist.

𝑑𝑑𝑑𝑑

The velocity of the fluid increases from zero velocity on the stationary

boundary to the free-stream velocity (𝑈𝑈) in the direction normal to the

boundary.

Introduction, cont’d

Thisvariation of velocity takes place in a narrow region in the vicinity of solid

boundary.

This narrow region of the fluid is called boundary layer.

The theory dealing with boundary layer flow is called boundary layer

theory.

According to boundary layer theory, the flow of fluid in the

neighbourhood of the solid boundary may be divided into two regions as

shown in Figure 1.

1. A very thin layer of the fluid called the boundary layer, in the

immediate neighbourhood of the solid boundary, where the variation

of velocity from zero at the solid boundary to free stream velocity in

the direction normal to the boundary takes place.

𝑑𝑑𝑑𝑑

-In this region, the velocity gradient exists, hence the fluid exerts a

𝑑𝑑𝑑𝑑

shear stress on the wall in the direction of motion.

Introduction, cont’d

𝑑𝑑𝑑𝑑

-The value of shear stress is given by 𝜏𝜏 = 𝜇𝜇 ….. (i)

𝑑𝑑𝑑𝑑

2. The remaining fluid, which is outside the boundary layer. The velocity

outside the boundary layer is constant and equal to free-stream

velocity.

𝑑𝑑𝑑𝑑

-As there is no variation of velocity in this region, the velocity gradient

𝑑𝑑𝑑𝑑

becomes zero.

-As a result of this shear stress is zero.

Definitions

Laminar Boundary Layer: Consider the flow of a fluid, having free-

stream velocity (𝑈𝑈), over a smooth thin plate which is flat and placed

parallel to the direction for free stream of fluid as shown in Fig. 2.

-Let us consider the flow with zero pressure gradient on one side of the

plate, which is stationary.

-The velocity of fluid on the surface of the plate should be equal to the

velocity of the plate.

-Since plate is stationary, the velocity of fluid on the surface of the plate is

zero. But a distance way from the plate, the fluid is having certain velocity.

-Thus, a velocity gradient is set up in the fluid near the surface of the plate.

This velocity gradient develops shear resistance, which retards the fluid.

-The fluid with a uniform free velocity (𝑈𝑈) is retarded in the vicinity of the

solid surface of the plate and the boundary layer region begins at the

sharp leading edge.

Definitions, cont’d

-At subsequent points downstream the leading edge, the boundary layer

region increases because the retarded fluid is further retarded.

- This is also referred to as the growth of boundary layer.

- Near the leading edge, where the thickness is small, the flow is laminar

though the main flow is turbulent.

- This layer of fluid is said to be laminar boundary layer shown by AE in

Fig. 2.

-The length of the plate from the leading edge, up to which laminar

boundary layer exists, is called laminar zone shown by AB.

- The distance of B from the leading edge is obtained from Reynold

number equal to 5 x 105 for a plate. Up to this Reynold number the

boundary layer is laminar.

Definitions, cont’d

𝑈𝑈 × 𝑥𝑥

-The Reynold number is given by 𝑅𝑅𝑒𝑒 𝑥𝑥 = ……(ii)

𝑣𝑣

-Where 𝑥𝑥 = distance from leading edge

𝑈𝑈 = free-stream velocity of fluid

𝑣𝑣 = kinematic viscosity of fluid,

𝑈𝑈 × 𝑥𝑥

Hence, for laminar boundary layer, we have 5 × 105 =

𝑣𝑣

-If the values of 𝑈𝑈 and 𝑣𝑣 are known, 𝑥𝑥 or the distance from the leading

edge up to which laminar boundary layer exists can be calculated.

Turbulent Boundary Layer: If the length of the plate is more than the

distance 𝑥𝑥, the thickness of the boundary layer will increase in the

downstream direction.

4/3/2017 DR. FUNMI JOSEPH , DR. UDO & ENGR. ADEOYE 7

Definitions, cont’d

-The laminar boundary layer becomes unstable and motion of fluid within it is

disturbed, and irregular which leads to a transition from laminar to turbulent

boundary layer.

-This short length over which the boundary layer flow changes from laminar to

turbulent is called transition zone shown by the distance BC in Fig. 2.

-Further downstream the transition zone, the boundary layer is turbulent and

continues to grow in thickness

-This layer of boundary is called turbulent boundary layer, shown by the

portion FG in Fig. 2.

Laminar Sub-Layer: the region in the turbulent boundary layer zone,

adjacent to the solid surface of the plate shown in Fig. 2.

- In this region, the velocity variation is influenced only by viscous effects.

Boundary Layer Thickness (𝛿𝛿): Is defined as the distance from the boundary

of the solid body measured in the y-direction to the point, where the velocity

of the fluid is approximately equal to 0.99 times the free stream velocity (𝑈𝑈)

of the fluid.

3. 𝛿𝛿 ′ = thickness of laminar sub-layer.

Displacement Thickness (𝛿𝛿 ∗ ): is defined as the distance, measured

perpendicular to the boundary of the solid body, by which the boundary

Separation of Boundary Layer

When a solid body is immersed in a flowing fluid, a thin layer of

fluid called the boundary layer is formed adjacent to the solid

body.

In this thin layer of fluid, the velocity varies from zero to free

stream velocity in the direction normal to the solid body.

Along the length of the solid body, the thickness of the boundary

layer increases. The fluid layer adjacent to the solid surface has to

do work against surface friction at the expense of its kinetic energy

This loss of kinetic energy is recovered from the immediate fluid

layer in contact with the layer adjacent to the solid surface through

momentum exchange process.

Thus, the velocity of the layer goes on decreasing.

4/3/2017 DR. FUNMI JOSEPH , DR. UDO & ENGR. ADEOYE 15

A stage may come when the boundary layer may not be able to

keep sticking to the solid body if it cannot provide kinetic energy

to overcome the resistance offered by the solid body.

In other words, the boundary layer will be separated from the

surface.

this phenomenon is called the boundary layer separation.

The point on the body at which the boundary layer is on the

verge of separation from the surface is called point of separation.

Methods of Preventing the Separation of Boundary Layer

When the boundary layer separates from the surface, a certain

portion adjacent to the surface has a backflow and eddies are

continuously formed, hence there is continuous loss of energy.

Separation of boundary layer is undesirable.

Methods of preventing separation include:

-Suction of slow moving fluid by a suction slot

-Supplying additional energy from a blower

-Providing a bypass in the slotted wing

-Rotating boundary in the direction of flow

-Providing small divergence in a diffuser

-Providing guide-blades in a bend

-Providing a trip-wire ring in the laminar region for the flow over a

sphere.
