1.0 INTRODUCTION

External flow past objects encompass as extremely wide variety of fluid mechanics

phenomena. The flow of real fluid (except at extremely low pressure) has two fundamental

characteristics which are there is no discontinuity of velocity and at the solid surface, the velocity

of the fluid relative to the surface is zero. Boundary layer is the region that closed to the surface

in which the velocity increases rapidly from zero approaches the velocity of the main stream

occurs. The boundary layer that formed in the flow along one side of a thin , smooth plate, flat

plate parallel to the direction of the oncoming fluid. The fluid originally having a velocity U in

the direction of the plate which retarded in the neighborhood of the surface and the boundary

layer begins at the leading edge of the plate. The purposed of the boundary layer on the plate is

to allow the fluid to change its velocity from the upstream value U to zero on the plate. Boundary

layer thickness is defined as the distance from the plate at which the fluid velocity is within

same arbitrary value of the upstream velocity. The boundary layer displacement thickness

is a distance by which the solid boundary would have to be displaced to give the same

mass defect as exist in boundary layer flow. Another boundary layer thickness definition is the

boundary layer momentum thickness is often used when determine the drag on an object.

Figure 1.2: Boundary layer

There are two different type of boundary layer flow which are laminar flow and turbulent

flow. laminar flow is a very smooth flow, while the turbulent boundary layer contains swirls or

"eddies." The laminar flow creates less skin friction drag than the turbulent flow, but is less

stable. Boundary layer flow over a wing surface begins as a smooth laminar flow. As the flow

continues back from the leading edge, the laminar boundary layer increases in thickness.

Reynolds Number for laminar flow is less than 500 x 10. At some distance back from the

leading edge, the smooth laminar flow breaks down and transitions to a turbulent flow. From a

drag standpoint, it is advisable to have the transition from laminar to turbulent flow as far aft on

the wing as possible, or have a large amount of the wing surface within the laminar portion of the

boundary layer. The low energy laminar flow, however, tends to break down more suddenly than

the turbulent layer. Reynolds Number for turbulent flow is more than 500 x 10.

2.0 OBJECTIVE

1. The boundary layer velocity layer was measured and the growth of the boundary layer for the

flat plate with smooth and rough surface was observed.

2. The boundary layer properties for the measured velocity profile was measured.

3. The effect of surface roughness on the development of the boundary layer was studied.

3.0 THEORY

The fluid flow theory that has been tested by experimental has shown that when a fluid flows

over a surface there is no slip (no slip boundary condition, V=0) at the surface. The fluid in

contact with the surface stays with it. Therefore the surface properties effects the speed of the

fluid follow contacted to it. The relative velocity increases from zero at the surface to that of the

free stream some little distance away from the surface. This is caused by the factor of friction, as

the velocity profile furthest apart from the plate which effects the velocity by friction. The fluid

in this small distance is called Boundary Layer.

Steady stream of fluid moving from left to right over a smooth plate is assumed. The free stream

velocity, U, is constant over the entire plate. It was founded that the boundary layer grows in

thickness the further it traveled downstream.

U U

Laminar Turbulence

Transition

The initial motion is laminar with a gradual increase in thickness. If the plate is sufficiently long

a transition to turbulence occurs.

Laminar Boundary Layer

Laminar flow (or streamline flow) occurs when a fluid flows in parallel layers, with no

disruption between the layers. At low velocities, the fluid tends to flow without lateral mixing,

and adjacent layers slide past one another like playing cards. The characteristic of a laminar

boundary layer flow are steady and smooth. There are no cross-currents perpendicular to the

direction of flow, nor eddies or swirls of fluids. The particles of the fluid motion are very orderly

placed and particles are close to a solid surface moving in straight lines parallel to that surface.

Laminar flow is a flow regime characterized by high momentum diffusion and low

momentum convection.

When a fluid is flowing through a closed channel such as a pipe or between two flat plates, either

of two types of flow may occur depending on the velocity and viscosity of the fluid: laminar

flow or turbulent flow. Laminar flow tends to occur at lower velocities, below a threshold at

which it becomes turbulent. Turbulent flow is a less orderly flow regime that is characterised

by eddies or small packets of fluid particles which result in lateral mixing. In non-scientific

terms, laminar flow is smooth while turbulent flow is rough.

In laminar boundary layer the flow is steady and smooth. Consequently the layer is thin. This

give rise to drag. The velocity gradient is moderate and although significant viscous stresses exist

is too small, so that skin friction is very small.

Turbulence Boundary Layer

In turbulence boundary layer the flow is unsteady and not smooth, but eddying. When specifying

velocities, we must consider mean values over a small time interval and not instantaneous values

as before. The distribution of mean velocity in any one time interval is the same as in another.

Thus we can still draw velocity profiles, which have meaning. Due to the eddying nature of the

flow there is a lot of movement of fluids between inner and outer layers of the regions. Thus the

velocity near the wall will be higher than in a laminar boundary layer where the movement and

energy transfer do not occur. The velocity gradient at the wall is consequently much higher so the

skin friction and drag are also higher.

The specific calculation of the Reynolds number, and the values where laminar flow occurs, will

depend on the geometry of the flow system and flow pattern. The common example is flow

through a pipe, where the Reynolds number is defined as:

V DH V D H q DH

= = =

where:

DH is the hydraulic diameter of the pipe; its characteristic travelled length, L, (m).

is the dynamic viscosity of the fluid (Pas = Ns/m2 = kg/(ms)).

The boundary layer thickness, , is defined as the distance from the surface to the point where

the velocity is within 1 percent of the stream velocity.

Another measure of the boundary layer is the shape factor, H, which is the ratio of the

from 2.6 to 3.5 at separation. For turbulent boundary layer, H increases from 1.3 to

approximately 2.5 at separation.

4.0 PROCEDURE

1. The apparatus has been setup on the bench. Smooth surface of the plate is used for the first

part of the experiment.

2. The position of the central plate was adjusted to set the measurement plate at the required

distance from leading edge which is 50mm.

3. The fan was switched on and the air flow speeds was adjusted to set the air stream velocity at

medium speed. The total pressure of the pitot tube was read for a range of several points as the

tube traverse toward the plate at an interval of 0.25mm.

4. As the pressure begins to fall, the increment of the advanced should be reduced so as to clearly

define the velocity profile. The pressure reading will not fall to zero as the pitot tube has a finite

thickness. A further indication that the wall has been reach is that the pressure reading will be

zero.

6. The entire experiment was repeated for the rough surface plate.

Based on the graph that has been plotted, there are different between graph plotted in Figure 1

(Graph of distance from leading edge, y (mm) versus u/U) and Figure 2 (Figure 7.2: Graph of

distance from leading edge, y (mm) versus u/U(1-u/U)

For Figure 7.1, u/U is a velocity profile of the boundary layer. Based on the Figure 1, for the

shape of the graph of Smooth plate (x= 0.05m), Smooth plate (x= 0.05m), Rough pate (x=0.05m)

and Rough plate (x=0.2m) is almost the same which is in parabolic form (as the distance from

leading edge, y (mm) increase, the velocity profile (u/U) is increases). For all 4 test that has been

conducted, the only different is the distance from leading edge, y (mm taken for velocity profile

to archive uniform velocity. For smooth plate (x= 0.05m) the leading edge taken for it to achieve

uniform velocity is at distance 4mm from leading edge. For smooth plate (x= 0.20m) the leading

edge taken for it to achieve uniform velocity is at distance 1.50mm from leading edge. . For

rough plate (x= 0.05m) the leading edge taken for it to achieve uniform velocity is at distance

2.00mm from leading edge. For rough plate (x= 0.20m) the leading edge taken for it to achieve

uniform velocity is at distance 2.25mm from leading edge. Based on the research from the other

source, this experiment is not very successful because there should be a turbulent on the rough

surface (Reynolds number > 500000). In this experiment the Reynolds number is less than

expected value.

Based on the graph in Figure 7.1, the rough surface line is not really in parabolic form, as

conclusion it is not very success experiment because there is error from the experiment. But the

shape of the graph can be referring as the velocity profile of the boundary layer. With good and

reliable equipment, the precise experiment can be made in order to achieve the objective of the

experiment.

For Figure 7.2, u/U(1-u/U) is momentum thickness, which refer to the thickness of a layer of

fluid of velocity, U (free stream velocity), for which the momentum flux is equal to the deficit of

momentum flux through the boundary layer. It is used to determining the drag on the object. The

highest drag is on the surface of the plate. For smooth plate (x= 0.05m), the momentum thickness

at the surface plate is 0.1749. For smooth plate (x= 0.20m), the momentum thickness at the

surface plate is 0.1589. For rough plate (x= 0.05m), the momentum thickness at surface plate is

0.1727. For rough plate (x= 0.20m), the momentum thickness at the surface plate is 0.1727. For

smooth plate (x= 0.05m), the momentum thickness at the boundary layer is 0.0098. For smooth

plate (x= 0.20m), the momentum thickness at the boundary layer is 0.0099. For rough plate (x=

0.05m), the momentum thickness at the boundary layer is 0.0099. For rough plate (x= 0.20m),

the momentum thickness at the boundary layer is 0.01.Based on the Figure 7.2, it is proven that

the momentum thickness value is depend on the surface of the plate since rough surface plate has

higher momentum thickness value compare to the smooth surface plate.

From the experiment that has been done, the pressure values have obtained from the manometer.

However, the values are different from the calculation and theory based on the Table 7.1. This is

because of some errors that occurred during the experiment was done. The percentage error from

the experiment is quite high which is not good and consider this experiment is not very

successful. The errors might be occurred because of the micrometer values were not accurate as

there are parallax error when the data was taken. Furthermore the micrometer was not in good

condition as it was not firmly gripped at the holder. Some of vibration that occurred at the

machine was also caused the errors. The roughness of the surfaces affects the values of the

pressures. Greater value of was obtained when the plane is rough while the value becomes

lesser when the distance from the edge of the plate is further. The free stream velocity calculated

was based on the roughness or smoothness of the surfaces.

Based on the table 7.1 the percentage error can be calculated as follow,

In this experiment, the velocity profiles in the boundary layer of a flat plate were measured for a

flat plate with both a smooth and rough surfaces. Based on Figure 7.1 and 7.2 the velocity

profile, u/U and momentum thickness, were measured by using formula and compare it

between experimental and theoretical value. It is shown that velocity profile of the boundary

layer is different based on the surface of the plate and the position along the path. There are 4

tests that has been conducted to measure and taken the data of the static pressure manometer and

pitot tube pressure manometer to calculate the 2 the velocity profile, u/U and momentum

thickness, . The two graph has been plotted which is graph of distance from leading edge, y

(mm) versus u/U and graph of distance from leading edge, y (mm) versus u/U(1-u/U). u/U is the

velocity profile and u/U(1-u/U) is to measured momentum thickness. All the description of the

graph has been discussed in the result analysis part.

There are different between experimental value and theoretical value of boundary layer thickness

, displacement thickness *, and momentum thickness at different leading distance and

surface. For test 1 (smooth plate at leading distance 0.05m) the percentage error for boundary

layer thickness is329.8%, for displacement thickness * is 95.8% and for and momentum

thickness is 331.4%. For test 2 (smooth plate at leading distance 0.2m) the percentage error for

boundary layer thickness is 30.2%, for displacement thickness * is 32.55% and for and

momentum thickness is 71.8%. For test 3(rough plate at leading distance 0.05m) the

percentage error for boundary layer thickness is 295.8%, for displacement thickness * is

86.5% and for and momentum thickness is 297.5%. For test 4(rough plate at leading distance

0.2m) the percentage error for boundary layer thickness is 33.6%, for displacement thickness

* is 35.9% and for and momentum thickness is 565.8%.

The percentage is quite huge due to error during experimental is conducted. The errors might be

occurred because of the micrometer values were not accurate as there are parallax error when the

data was taken. Furthermore the micrometer was not in good condition as it was not firmly

gripped at the holder. Some of vibration that occurred at the machine was also caused the errors.

9.0 CONCLUSION

The boundary layer velocities on the velocity profile for flat plate with smooth

and rough surface have been obtained where the data can be seen from the

Table 6.1-6.2-6.3-6.4. The experiment was conducted with 4 test (test 1 with

measured from 0.05m distance from edge plate and test 2 was measured at

0.2m distance from edge of plate both is a smooth plate. Meanwhile, test 3 and

4 was done with the same distance which is test 1 same with test 3, 2 same

with 4, but both on a rough surface. The growth of the boundary layer both for

the smooth and rough surface increased as the distance thickness of the

boundary layer increase or known as the distance from the plate to the

measured point (y value). The further the distance of measured point from the

plate, significantly the value of velocity become constant as it is the limit of the

fluids velocity or known as the stream velocity. This conclude that velocity that

is further from the plate does not get disturb by any external properties such as

turbulent flow or friction. The characteristics of the flat plate gives the different

variety of the velocity profile and different position in velocity profile produces

different value of velocity. Therefore effecting the value and height of boundary

layer thickness, boundary layer displacement and boundary layer momentum

can be seen from the Table 6.1-6.2-6.3-6.4. In a nutshell the smoothness or

roughness of a surfaces effects the flow properties (boundary layers, velocity,

and the transition flow period from laminar to turbulent). Other than that , as

the flow distance is further from the first edge of the plate (0.2m from plate) all

the values of boundary layer (boundary layer thickness, boundary layer

displacement and boundary layer ) is smaller than the measurement at that is

0.05m from edge of plate. Based on the theory and figure 1.1 shows that as

the flow furthers from edge of plate starts to transition from laminar to

turbulent. This is why values on 0.05m to edge are bigger than values

from 0.2m from edge. In a nutshell the further the flow from the collision point

between plate and fluid flow the flow tend to develop to a turbulent flow .One of

the main factors is the friction cause between the surface and the fluid. This

interaction between the two medium will satisfies two different character

development of boundary. The rougher the surface the more friction is develop

in the contact of two medium. As amount of friction is indirectly proportional to

the velocity of a moving medium. Therefor it can be concluded that all the

objective for the experiment is acceptable to be successful even with a few

errors that occurred and affected the percentage error, because the growth of

boundary layer for flat plate for both surface was observed, the boundary layer

velocities was measured, boundary layer properties was obtained and the effect

of surface roughness on the development of the boundary layer was verified.

. The boundary layer velocity layer was measured and the growth of the boundary layer for the

flat plate with smooth and rough surface was observed.

2. The boundary layer properties for the measured velocity profile was measured.

3. The effect of surface roughness on the development of the boundary layer was studied.

The velocity profiles of the flat plate have been obtained through data read and the

graphs have been plotted.
