PRINCIPLES OF CONVECTION
5.1. INTRODUCTION
5.2. VISCOUS FLOW
Shear stress:

µ - Dynamic viscosity
Boundary layer: the region of flow that develops from the
leading edge of a plate in which the effects of the viscosity are
observed.
The outside boundary of a boundary layer is usually chosen as
the point where the velocity of flow is 99% of the free steam
value.
Three regimes of boundary-layer flow
1. Laminar flow
2. Transitional flow
3. Turbulent flow
The transition occurs when:

Renolds number

For most analytical purposes, the critical number for the transition is usually taken as 5 x
105
The critical Re for transition is strongly dependent on the surface
roughness condition and the “turbulent level” of the free-stream.
The normal range for the beginning of transition is between:
5 x 105 to 106
For very large disturbance present in the flow, transition may begin
with Renolds number as low as
105
For flows that are very free from fluctuation, the transition may not
start until

## The transition is completed at Re twice the value at the transition

begin.
The relative shape for the velocity profiles in laminar and turbulent flow
The laminar profile is approximately parabolic
Structure of turbulent profile:
Laminar sublayer that is nearly linear.
Turbulent portion which is relatively flat in
comparison with the laminar profile.
The physical mechanism of viscosity in fluids
In laminar flow, the viscosity is attribute to the exchange of momentum
between different laminas by the movement of molecules.
In turbulent flow, the momentum exchange between different layers is
caused by the macroscopic movement of fluid chunks. We can expect a
larger viscous-shear in turbulent flow than in laminar flow, due to which
the velocity profile is flat in a turbulent boundary layer.
