One approach to calculating a turbulent boundary layer on a surface with a compliant coating

  • A. B. Airapetov


A method is proposed for calculating a turbulent boundary layer on a surface with a viscoelastic coating. The method is based on the introduction of the van Driest damping function to account for the effect of the coating on the boundary layer.
