4.2 The momentum-integral relation

4.3 Application to laminar flow

4.4 Application to turbulent flow

Examples

The integral analysis of boundary layers was originally proposed by Theodore von Krmn

and K. Pohlhausen in separate papers in 1921.

Displacement Thickness

The flow near the surface is retarded, so

that the streamlines must be displaced

outwards to satisfy continuity. To reduce

the total mass flow rate of a frictionless

fluid by the same amount, the surface

would have to be displaced outward by a distance

called the displacement thickness:

The loss of momentum flux for the mass flux U dy between adjacent streamlines is

(U e U ) U dy . Hence the total loss of momentum flux is equivalent to the removal of

momentum through a distance , called the momentum thickness:

Notes.

(1) The results also hold along a curved-wall boundary layer, provided that the radius of

curvature is much greater than the thickness of the boundary layer.

(2) The integral relations hold whether the boundary layer is laminar, turbulent or

transitional.

(3) The integral relation is exact only for the correct mean velocity profile. However, the

power of the scheme is that it provides an excellent estimate of drag with only a half-decent

approximation for U(y).

(4) For a flat-plate boundary layer with zero pressure gradient and no wall transpiration,

Krmns integral relation takes the particularly simple form:

Zero pressure-gradient boundary layer:

where D( L) = w dx is given by

( L)

c D ( L) = 2

(7)

The total drag is entirely determined by the downstream momentum thickness.

(5) The shape factor H is only relevant when there is a free-stream pressure gradient

(dUe/dx 0). A large shape factor indicates a boundary layer approaching separation.

(6) An alternative proof of Krmns integral relation starting from the differential

boundary-layer equations is given in the Examples Section.

coefficient c D ( L) = 0.072 Re 1 / 5 . This is still widely used today.
