CSUS ENGR132 ZHOU HOMEWORK #6 1. An Eiffel type wind tunnel operates by drawing air through a contraction, passing this air through a test section (a rectangular section of duct made of clear plastic, and then exhausting the air using a large axial fan. In the test section, it is important that the boundary layer be very thin at the end of the test section to provide a uniform velocity distribution. For the pictured wind tunnel below, the test section is square with the dimension of W = 457mm on each side & a length of L = 914 mm. Find the ratio of δ (x = L)/W for two cases: (a) incoming minimum velocity of 1 m/s

Model is being developed for the entrance region between two flat plates. As shown it is assumed that the region is approximated by turbulent boundary layer originating at the leading edge using the leading edge trips. The system is designed such that the plates end where the boundary layers merge. The spacing between the plates is 4mm and the entrance velocity is 10m/s. The fluid is water at 20°C. Find the length L where the boundary layers merge. (Answer: 0.239m)...
