Analytical and experimental investigation of adiabatic turbulent flow in smooth tubes

Robert G. Deissler
Jul 1950

Equations were derived for the prediction of velocity distributions for fully developed adiabatic turbulent flow in smooth tubes; both the incompressible- and compressible-flow cases were treated. The analysis produced a single equation that represents flow in both the conventional buffer layer and the laminar layer.
