APPROXIMATE CALCULATION OF TURBULENT BOUNDARY LAYER DEVELOPMENT ON SHIP HULLS

A simplified method of calculating turbulent boundary layer development on ship hulls is described. It takes account of convergence or divergence of the external flow streamlines but neglects boundary layer crossflow. Results in fair agreement with experiment are obtained.
