Turbulent Flow and Transport 6 Introduction to Turbulent Boundary Layers 6.1 The nature of flow in turbulent boundary layers. Inner and outer regions, eddy diffusivity distributions, intermittency, etc. 6.2 Integral form of the mean flow boundary layer equations. 6.3 Reasons for why the turbulent boundary layer velocity profile must be defined in terms of at least two parameters [e.g. δ (x) and u] in turbulent flow, vs. only one [e.g. δ (x)] in laminar boundary layer. 6.4 Cole’s "universal" mean−velocity profile for the logarithmic and outer regions in a turbulent boundary layer, expressed in terms of a wake function W(y/ δ ) and profile parameter Π ( β ). 6.5 Use of Cole’s velocity profile in the integral boundary layer equation, for arbitrary pressure gradient. 6.6 Examples: solutions for smooth and rough flat plates; admissible roughness. 6.7 On the physical nature of the flow in boundary layers: turbulence bursts, bursting
