Laminar Thin Boundary Layer Equations (d<<x) over flat plate
Steady flow, constant r and m. Streamlines slightly divergent 2D Navier-Stokes Equations along x direction: Compared with 2004 Mecânica dos Fluidos II Prof. António Sarmento - DEM/IST

Laminar Thin Boundary Layer Equations (d<<x) over flat plate
Laminar thin boundary layer equations (d<<x) for flat plates pe external pressure, can be calculated with Bernoulli’s Equation as there are no viscous effects outside the Boundary Layer Note 1. The plate is considered flat if d is lower then the local curvature radius Note 2. At the separation point, the BD grows a lot and is no longer thin 2004 Mecânica dos Fluidos II Prof. António Sarmento - DEM/IST

Turbulent Thin Boundary Layer Equations (d<<x) over flat plate
2D Thin Turbulent Boundary Layer Equation (d<<x) to flat plates: 0 Resulting from Reynolds Tensions (note the w term) 2004 Mecânica dos Fluidos II Prof. António Sarmento - DEM/IST

Boundary Layer Separation
Boundary Layer Separation: reversal of the flow by the action of an adverse pressure gradient (pressure increases in flow’s direction) viscous effects mfm: BL / Separation / Flow over edges and blunt bodies 2004 Mecânica dos Fluidos II Prof. António Sarmento - DEM/IST

Boundary Layer Separation
Boundary layer separation: reversal of the flow by the action of an adverse pressure gradient (pressure increases in flow’s direction) viscous effects 2004 Mecânica dos Fluidos II Prof. António Sarmento - DEM/IST

Boundary Layer Separation
Bidimensional (2D) Thin Boundary Layer (d<<x) Equations to flat plates: Close to the wall (y=0) u=v=0 : Similar results to turbulent boundary layer - close to the wall there is laminar/linear sub-layer region. 2004 Mecânica dos Fluidos II Prof. António Sarmento - DEM/IST

Boundary Layer Separation
Outside Boundary layer: Close to the wall (y=0) u=v=0 : Same sign The external pressure gradient can be: dpe/dx=0 <–> U0 constant (Paralell outer streamlines): dpe/dx>0 <–> U0 decreases (Divergent outer streamlines): dpe/dx<0 <–> U0 increases (Convergent outer streamlines): 2004 Mecânica dos Fluidos II Prof. António Sarmento - DEM/IST

Boundary Layer Separation
Zero pressure gradient: dpe/dx=0 <–> U0 constant (Paralell outer streamlines): y u Curvature of velocity profile is constant No separation of boundary layer Inflection point at the wall 2004 Mecânica dos Fluidos II Prof. António Sarmento - DEM/IST

Boundary Layer Separation
Favourable pressure gradient: dpe/dx<0 <–> U0 increases (Convergent outer streamlines): y No boundary layer separation Curvature of velocity profile remains constant 2004 Mecânica dos Fluidos II Prof. António Sarmento - DEM/IST

Boundary Layer Separation
Adverse pressure gradient: dpe/dx>0 <–> U0 decreases (Divergent outer streamlines): y Boundary layer Separation can occur Separated Boundary Layer Curvature of velocity profile can change P.I. 2004 Mecânica dos Fluidos II Prof. António Sarmento - DEM/IST

Boundary Layer Separation
Sum of viscous forces: Become zero with velocity Can not cause by itself the fluid stagnation (and the separation of Boundary Layer) 2004 Mecânica dos Fluidos II Prof. António Sarmento - DEM/IST

Boundary Layer Separation
Effect of longitudinal pressure gradient: (Convergent outer streamlines) (Divergent outer streamlines) Viscous effects retarded Viscous effects reinforced Fuller velocity profiles Less full velocity profiles Decreases BL growth Increases BL growths 2004 Mecânica dos Fluidos II Prof. António Sarmento - DEM/IST

Boundary Layer Separation
Effect of longitudinal pressure gradient: Less full velocity profiles Fuller velocity profiles Decreases BL growth Increases BL growths Fuller velocity profiles – more resistant to adverse pressure gradients Turbulent flows (fuller profiles)- more resistant to adverse pressure gradients 2004 Mecânica dos Fluidos II Prof. António Sarmento - DEM/IST

Boundary Layer Sepaation
Longitudinal and intense adverse pressure gradient does not cause separation Longitudinal and intense adverse pressure gradient does not cause separation => there’s not viscous forces 2004 Mecânica dos Fluidos II Prof. António Sarmento - DEM/IST
