Three-dimensional hydrodynamic z-layer models, which are used for simulating the flow in rivers, estuaries, and oceans, suffer from an inaccurate and often discontinuous bottom shear stress representation, due to the staircase bottom. We analyze the governing equations and clearly show the cause of the inaccuracies. Based on the analysis, we...

This paper describes the hydrodynamic erosion process of undisturbed clay due to the turbulent flow, based on theoretical analysis and experimental results. The undisturbed clay has the unique and complicated characteristics of cohesive force among clay particles, which are highly different from disturbed clay and non-cohesive sand. Based on...

Wall-shear stresses are highly important in the aerodynamic design of aircraft, because they determine the drag and thus the fuel consumption of an airplane. Due to this importance many different measurement techniques have been developed. Most of these techniques are intrusive, which means that the flow is disturbed by the presence of a...

Boundary layer transition induced by high levels of free stream turbulence (FSl), so called bypass transition, can not be predicted with conventional stability calculations (e.g. the en-method). The use of turbulence models for transition prediction has shown some success for this type of flows, and the present study is a further investigation...

An infinite flat plate covered with a thin layer of a power-law fluid sheared by an air stream is considered. The equations and boundary conditions governing the temporal linear stability problem are derived assuming small disturbances superimposed on a steady primary flow. The latter consists of a Blasius boundary-layer flow for the air stream...

The boundary layer along the fuselage, wings and tailplanes of aircraft will usually be laminar at the leading edge and will become unstable further downstream. Once the boundary layer has become unstable it will undergo transition to turbulence. Stability and transition can be considered as one of the most complex problems of fluid dynamics....

This book presents a method for the prediction of mean flow data (i.e. skin friction, velocity profile and shape parameter) for adiabatic two-dimensional compressible turbulent boundary layers at zero pressure gradient. The transformed law of the wall, law of the lake, the van Driest model for the complete inner region and a correlation between...

The symposium demonstrated the importance of research in the area of mechanical high-lift systems for transport aircraft to improve the total performance of current transports. Computational techniques are shown to provide new tools for high-lift design. With regard to drag reduction by laminar flow control it is concluded that the information...

A description will be presented of a computer program system that is being used for the prediction of aircraft steady aerodynamic characteristics. Properties of the system are described from two different viewpoints. One is that of the aerodynamic designer, who needs an information system to predict lift, moment and drag characteristics and to...

The attached flow around a swept wing has been calcTilated with allowance for the effects of boundary layer and wake. In part I a swept wing was considered with a turbulent boundary layer on both the upper and lower wing surface. The present part of the study deals with the calculation of the flow around the same swept wing with a laminar...

A computer program has been prepared for the calculation of turbulent boundary layer development, based on a 3-D version of the turbulent energy method. The method is briefly discussed. The computer program is described in detail. The present program is restricted to developable surfaces.
