Fluid Dynamics: Part 3 Boundary Layers

Anatoly I. Ruban


This is Part 3 of a book series on fluid dynamics. This is designed to give a comprehensive and coherent description of fluid dynamics, starting with chapters on classical theory suitable for an introductory undergraduate lecture courses, and then progressing through more advanced material up to the level of modern research in the field. This book is devoted to high-Reynolds number flows. It begins by analysing the flows that can be described in the framework of Prandtl’s 1904 classical boundary-layer theory. These analyses include the Blasius boundary layer on a flat plate, the Falkner-Skan s ... More

Keywords: boundary-layer theory, viscous-inviscid interaction, triple-deck theory, separated flows, high-Reynolds number flows, Prandtl, Falkner–Skan
