Applied mathematical model for turbulent boundary layers

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We present a complete analytical model for mean velocity profile in turbulent boundary layers. The model integrates the conventional log-wake law and the Barenblatt power (scaling) law in the intermediate region so that it includes the effects of the Reynolds number. Furthermore, it includes the effects of the wall and the boundary layer edge so that the model can describe the entire turbulent boundary layer mean velocity profile analytically. The model has been confirmed with recent laboratory experimental data of Osterlund.
