AN EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION OF THE THREE-DIMENSIONAL TURBULENT BOUNDARY LAYER ON A SHIP MODEL
The purpose of the investigation has been to produce a test case for boundary layer calculations on ship-like bodies. A 2 m double model of a cargo liner has been investigated in a wind tunnel at a Reynolds number of 5 million. Boundary layer velocity profiles and static pressure have been measured at a large number of points distributed over the whole surface. An account is given of the experimental technique, and the results are presented in some detail. First, however, a summary is given of the theory for three-dimensional turbulent boundary layers and of previous work in this area.
