Title: Introduction to Boundary Layers
Department: Mechanical Engineering
Author: Dr. Rinku Mukherjee
University: IIT Madras
Type: WebLink
Abstract: This course introduces the concept of a boundary layer and the physical concepts of boundary layer thickness (δ), displacement thickness (δ*), momentum thickness ( θ ) and friction drag. It derives Prandtl s Boundary Layer Equations for laminar boundary layers from the basic Navier-Stokes equations and discusses their exact solutions. It discusses how a laminar boundary layer transitions to turbulence and separates. It also discusses thermal boundary layers.
