CALCULATION OF TURBULENT BOUNDARY LAYERS OVER FLAT PLATES WITH DIFFERENT PHENOMENOLOGICAL THEORIES OF TURBULENCE AND VARIABLE TURBULENT PRANDTL NUMBER

Three different methods for calculation of a stationary, two-dimensional, incompressible flow over a plate with negligible viscous dissipation were investigated. A model for the variable turbulent Prandtl number is developed. Numerical solutions are obtained using a modified Spalding-Patankar finite difference method. Several empirical constants are evaluated and predictions are then tested against experimental data.
