Introduction to Convection: Flow and Thermal Considerations Chapter Six and Appendix E Sections 6.1 through 6.8 and E.1 through E.3
Boundary Layer Features Boundary Layers: Physical Features Velocity Boundary Layer A consequence of viscous effects associated with relative motion between a fluid and a surface. A region of the flow characterized by shear stresses and velocity gradients. A region between the surface and the free stream whose thickness increases in the flow direction. 0.99 u y u Why does increase in the flow direction? Manifested by a surface shear stress that provides a drag force, . s D F 0 s y u y s D s s A F dA How does vary in the flow direction? Why? s
Boundary Layer Features (cont.) Thermal Boundary Layer A consequence of heat transfer between the surface and fluid. A region of the flow characterized by temperature gradients and heat fluxes.

Transition Boundary Layer Transition How would you characterize conditions in the laminar regionof boundary layerdevelopment?In the turbulent region?What conditions are associated with transitionfrom laminar to turbulent flow?Why is the Reynolds number an appropriate parameter for quantifying transitionfrom laminar to turbulent flow?
Transition (cont.)What may be said about transition if ReL< Rex,c?If ReL> Rex,cEffect of transition on boundary layer thickness and local convection coefficient:Why does transition provide a significant increase in the boundary layer thickness?Why does the convection coefficient decay in the laminar region? Why does it increase significantly with transition to turbulence, despite the increase in the boundary layerthickness? Why does the convection coefficient decay in the turbulent region? ?
Boundary Layer Equations The Boundary Layer Equations Consider concurrent velocity and thermal boundary layer development for steady, two-dimensional, incompressible flow with constant fluid properties and negligible body forces .
