BOUNDARY LAYER METHODS APPLIED TO INTERNAL FLUID PROBLEMS

The paper considers how integral boundary layer techniques may be used to solve problems of incompressible turbulent fluid flow through ducts and pipes. In formulating relationships which are auxiliary to the Karman momentum equation more detail is required about shear stress development within the boundary layer. Otherwise entrainment principles, relating boundary layer rate of growth in various ways to other flow parameters, can be employed. The worth of the solutions so obtained is considered, illustrated by results which are compared with the best relevant experimental data.
