DETERMINATION OF SURFACE FRICTION COEFFICIENT OF A REPLICA OF SHIPS-PLATE FROM BOUNDARY LAYER ANALYSIS IN AN OPEN CHANNEL

One of the major problems in obtaining the surface friction coefficient is that accurate velocity measurements must be obtained in the boundary layer. There are several methods of achieving this and it is hoped that the following will give the reader a better understanding as to the applications and disadvantages of these techniques. One of the more modern approaches for evaluating the surface friction coefficient is use of the logarithmic inner law which has been used in, and the results verified, using the Prandtl power law technique.
