Schlichting, H.
naca-tm-1218
1949


The subject of turbulent flow is treated in detail. The available data on flow through pipes and over flat plates are presented. Turbulent wakes and jets are treated by means of the Prandtl mixing length theory. A section is devoted to the Gruschwitz method for calculating turbulent boundary layers in accelerated and retarded flows. The methods of Betz and Jones for determining profile drag from wake surveys are given. A chapter on the theory of the stability of the laminar boundary layer, developed from the point of view of small oscillations, is also included.
