4 Boundary Layer:When a real fluid flows past a solid body or a solid wall, the fluid particles adhere to the boundary and condition of no slip occurs.
5 Laminar Boundary Layer: If the value of k is less then boundary (δ’ ) is known as smooth Boundary
6 Turbulent Boundary Layer: If the length of plate is more than the distance x, the thickness of boundary layer will go on increasing in the downstream direction.Then the laminar boundary layer will becomes unstable and motion of fluid within it, is disturbed and irregular which leads to a transition from laminar to turbulent boundary layer.
7 Laminar Sub-layer:This is the region in the turbulent boundary layer zone, adjacent to the solid surface of the plate.In this zone, the velocity variation is influenced only by viscous effects.
8 Boundary layer thickness (δ): It is defined as the distance from the boundary of the solid body measured in the y-direction to the point, where the velocity of the fluid is approximately equal to 0.99 times the free stream velocity (U) of the fluid.It denoted by the symbol δ
9 Displacement Thickness (δ*): It is defined as the distance, measured perpendicular to the boundary of the solid body, by which the boundary should be displaced to compensate for the reduction in flow rate on account of boundary layer formation.It is denoted by δ*“ The distance perpendicular to the boundary, by which the free-stream is displaced due to the formation of boundary layer’

12 Momentum Thickness (Ө): Momentum thickness is defined as the distance, measured perpendicular to the boundary of the solid body, by which the boundary should be displaced to compensate for the reduction in momentum of the flowing fluid on account of boundary layer formation.It is denoted by ӨMomentum of this fluid = Mass x Velocity2) Momentum of this fluid in absence of boundary layer =Loss of momentum through elemental strip
13 Total loss of momentum/Sec through Loss of momentum/sec of fluid flowing through distance Ө with U
14 Energy thickness (δ**): It is defined as the distance measured perpendicular to the boundary of the solid body, by which the boundary should be displaced to compenste for the reduction in kinetic energy of the flowing fluid on account of boundary layer formation.It is denoted by δ**Kinetic energy of fluid in the absence of boundary layerLoss of K.E. through elemental strip
