Numerical Simulation of the Turbulent Boundary Layer with an Adverse Pressure Gradient

Abstract

Numerical simulation of the turbulent boundary layer with an adverse pressure gradient is performed on the basis of a differential three-equation turbulence model. The investigation is carried out for moderate and strong pressure gradients, the latter corresponding to a preseparation boundary layer. The results of the calculations of the mean velocity and the turbulence intensity point to a considerable influence of the adverse pressure gradient and are in agreement with the available experimental data in a wide range of governing parameters.
