University of Alberta Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering ChE 312 Fluid Mechanics Seminar Session 03 Question 1) The fluid in direct contact with a stationary solid boundary has zero velocity; there is no slip at the boundary. Thus the flow over a flat plate adheres to the plate surface and forms a boundary layer, as depicted below. The flow ahead of the plate is uniform with velocity 𝑉�⃗=𝑈𝚤⃗; U = 30 m/s. The velocity distribution along cd is approximated as a steady, one-dimensional flow𝑉�⃗=𝑢𝚤⃗; 𝑢=𝑈 �2�𝑦𝛿� − �𝑦𝛿�2�. The boundary-layer thickness at location d is δ = 5 mm. The fluid is air with
