Nature Edit Frank E. Fish states that dolphins appear to have a turbulent boundary layer to reduce the likelihood of separation and minimize drag, and that mechanisms for maintaining a laminar boundary layer to reduce skin friction have not been demonstrated for dolphins. Roughening causes the boundary layer to become turbulent and remain attached farther round the back before breaking away with a smaller wake than would otherwise be the case. Balls may be struck in different ways to give them spin which makes them follow a curved path. The spin causes boundary layer separation to be biased to one side which produces a side force. BL control roughening was applied to golf balls in the 19th century.

Numerical Integration of the Boundary-Layer Equations. Review Text From the reviews: "We find here a book where the theory is developed with rigours in parallel with a strong physical intuition.

Comparison with experiments and simulations are always proposed and carefully analysed. The book contains at the end a very rich and complete bibliography I warmly encourage everyone interested in boundary-layer theory to have this book in his bookcase. I do recommend the book highly, especially for its long historical perspective, including all the diagrams comparing theory and experiment that remind us that engineering is practical He studied the mathematics, physics and applied mechanics at the University of Jena, Vienne and Goettingen and was promoted After a short period at Dornier in Friedrichshafen where he was responsible for the new wind tunnel he joined the Technische Universitat Braunschweig in and became professor in at the age of Herman Schlichting became an Emeritus Professor in Klaus Gersten is a German mathematician, engineer and expert in fluid mechanics.

He studied mathematics and physics at the Technical University Braunschweig from to In he completed his doctorate under supervision of Hermann Schlichting. After his habilitation in , he was appointed in to the University of Bochum where he in the Institute of Thermodynamics and Fluid Dynamics until his retirement.


Boundary-Layer Theory

Types of boundary layer[ edit ] Boundary layer visualization, showing transition from laminar to turbulent condition Laminar boundary layers can be loosely classified according to their structure and the circumstances under which they are created. The thin shear layer which develops on an oscillating body is an example of a Stokes boundary layer , while the Blasius boundary layer refers to the well-known similarity solution near an attached flat plate held in an oncoming unidirectional flow and Falkner—Skan boundary layer , a generalization of Blasius profile. When a fluid rotates and viscous forces are balanced by the Coriolis effect rather than convective inertia , an Ekman layer forms. In the theory of heat transfer, a thermal boundary layer occurs. A surface can have multiple types of boundary layer simultaneously.
