Numerical calculation of steady twodimensional axisymmetrical turbulent boundary layer of a compressible fluid
Abstract
A momentum equation expressed by the stress tensor was employed to derive the momentum equation of a nonrotational steady axisymmetrical turbulent boundary layer of a compressible fluid in the axisymmetrical coordinate system. It was found that if the flow in the duct was to be treated as viscous fluid everywhere then the curvature of the duct and the rate of variation of the curvature along the direction of the flow cannot be too large. This was not proven in existing literature. Based on the set of equations proposed in this paper, a computer program is compiled and a numerical example is computed.
