EVOLUTION OF A MODERATELY SHORT TURBULENT BOUNDARY LAYER IN A SEVERE PRESSURE GRADIENT

The early and intermediate development of a highly accelerated (or decelerated) turbulent boundary layer is analyzed. For sufficiently large accelerations (or pressure gradients) and for total normal strains which are not excessive the equation for the Reynolds shear stress simplifies to give a stress that remains approximately constant as it is convected along streamlines. The theoretical results for the evolution of the mean velocity is favorable and adverse pressure gradients agree well with experiment for the cases considered. A calculation which includes mass injection at the wall is also given.
