A GENERAL METHOD FOR CALCULATING THREE-DIMENSIONAL IMCOMPRESSIBLE LAMINAR AND TURBULENT BOUNDARY LAYERS. III. THREE-DIMENSIONAL FLOWS IN CURVILINEAR ORTHOGONAL COORDINATES

This report summarizes the third phase of studies conducted on the computation of three-dimensional incompressible laminar and turbulent boundary layers. Solutions of the governing equations in curvilinear orthogonal coordinates are presented for a curved rectangular duct. In addition the small-cross-flow method developed by Cebeci, Kaups, and Mosinskis is applied to compute the boundary layer on a cargo ship hull. The method uses the eddy-viscosity concept to model the Reynolds shear-stress terms and uses a very efficient two-point finite-difference method to solve the governing equations.
