Boundary Layers

  • Mrinal KaushikEmail author


This chapter presents the boundary layer hypothesis and surveyed its results. We have described the mathematical simplifications it allows to obtain the reduced form of the full governing equations of motion for a viscous fluid. Several exact and approximate solutions for steady laminar boundary layer flows are talked about at a length. What’s more, the physics behind the boundary layer transition and separation are likewise inspected.
