QUESTION: 1

### The hydrodynamic boundary layer thickness is defined as the distance from the surface where the

Solution:

Hydrodynamic boundary layer thickness is defined as the distance measured in the y direction from boundary to the point where the velocity is 99% of the free stream velocity.

QUESTION: 2

### Laminar boundary layer thickness (δ) at any point x for flow over a flat plate is given by δ/x

Solution:

From the Blasius solution QUESTION: 3

### The velocity profile for turbulent layer over a flat plate is

Solution:

Turbulent velocity profile follows 1/7 power law, hence will be velocity distribution.

QUESTION: 4

The turbulent boundary layer thickness varies as

Solution:

For turbulent flow QUESTION: 5

Solution:

Von-karman momentum integral equation is expressed as QUESTION: 8

Consider the following statements:
Boundary layer separation is caused by:
2. Sudden entrapping of air
3. Reduction of pressure gradient to zero
4. Release of bubbles from the fluid when the pressure goes below the vapor pressure

Q. Which of the above statements is/are correct?

Solution:
QUESTION: 9

Air flows past a golf bail of 20 mm radius. It is observed that the boundary layer becomes turbulent at Reynolds number of 2 x 105. If the kinematic viscosity of air is 1.5 x 10-5 m2/sec then the speed of air when the flow becomes turbulent is

Solution: QUESTION: 10
