ME 521 Fall 2007 Professor John M. Cimbala Lecture 44 12/14/2007 Today, [LAST LECTURE ] we will : Discuss Falkner-Skan wedge flows – boundary layers with imposed pressure gradients Begin discussing 2-D laminar free shear flows [will continue in ME 522!] If time permits, do C a n d y Q u e s t i o n s f o r C a n d y F r i d a y E. Falkner-Skan Wedge Flows (see pdf handout on website, also duplicated below) 1. Introduction 2. Similarity solution Falkner-Skan Wedge Flows Author: John M. Cimbala, Penn State University Latest revision: 11 December 2007 1. Introduction In class we found a similarity solution for the laminar flat plate boundary layer, where the potential outer flow was simply U ( x ) = U = constant. It turns out that a similarity solution can be found for some much more general boundary layer problems, even when U ( x ) is not constant. Consider steady, incompressible, two-dimensional, laminar boundary layer flow over some body where the potential outer flow U ( x ) is known .
