APPLICATIONS OF A GENERAL METHOD OF CALCULATING SHEAR LAYERS

A calculation method using a differential equation for the turbulent shear stress has been successfully applied to boundary layers with compressibility, heat transfer, three-dimensionality or unsteady flow, with an empirical input obtained almost entirely from low-speed flow at constant pressure. With numerical changes in the empirical input the method has been extended to duct flows and free shear layers. Running times are typically 5 to 10 sec on a CDC 6600 or five times this on an IBM 7094; programs are freely available from the authors.
