3 BL_03 One method proposed to decrease drag and avoid boundary layer separation on aircraft is to use suction to remove the low momentum fluid near the aircraft surface. By removing the low momentum fluid near the surface, the boundary layer remains more stable and transition to a turbulent boundary layer is delayed. Only recently has this method been attempted in practice (Aviation Week & Space Technology, Oct. 12, 1998, pg. 42). Airbus is currently testing a microperforated titanium skin on an Airbus A320 aircraft fin. The ultimate goal of Airbus tests is to reduce wing drag by 1016% and empenage/nacelles drag by nearly 5%. Fuel consumption is epected to be decreased by as much as 13%. To analyze this flow, consider a laminar boundary layer on a porous flat plate. Fluid is removed through the plate at a uniform velocity, V. The thickness of the boundary layer is denoted by and the velocity outside the boundary layer is a constant,. Assuming that the velocity profile, u, is given by a power law epression (n is a positive constant describing the shape of the profile and y is the vertical distance from the surface of the plate): u y 1 n Determine: 1. the momentum thickness of the boundary layer in terms of 2. the drag acting on the plate over a length L if the plate has a depth b into the page (epress your answer in terms of M.) y fluid velocity through porous plate, V porous plate with depth, b, into page L M 2 D b n n1n2 n V L n n 1 2 or 2 V D b M L C.

6 BL_06 Flow straighteners are arrays of narrow ducts placed in wind tunnels to remove swirl and other inplane secondary velocities. They can be idealized as square boes constructed by vertical and horizontal plates as shown in the figure. The crosssection of the bo is a by a and the bo length is L. Assuming laminar flat plate flow and an array of N by N boes, derive a formula for: a. the total drag on the bundle of boes. b. the effective pressure drop across the bundle.

8 BL_12 The working section of a water tunnel consists of a duct with a rectangular crosssection. The width of the crosssection, b (perpendicular to the sketch), is constant but the height, h(), may vary with longitudinal distance,, measured along the centerline of the duct: 1 / 2 h() 1 / 2 h() Laminar boundary layers form on the upper and lower surfaces of the working section and would cause an acceleration of the flow outside the layers if the height h were constant (A similar effect would be caused by the front and back surfaces but we ignore this for the purposes of this problem and assume that there are no boundary layers on the front and back surfaces.) A water tunnel designer wishes to select the function h() in order to ensure that the pressure and velocity outside the boundary layer (say, on the centerline) vary with distance,, in a specified way. The designer decides to use functions of the form: k h h0 H where h 0, H, and k are constants and the boundary layers begin at =0. Find the value of k which produces zero longitudinal pressure gradient in the tunnel. Also find the epression for H in terms of b, the kinematic viscosity,, and the velocity of the flow at the centerline,. k 1 2 H 2* C. Wassgren, Purdue niversity Page 8 of 17 Last pdated: 2010 Nov 22
9 BL_15 Air, with a density of 1.23 kg/m 3 and a kinematic viscosity of 2.5*106 m 2 /s, enters a long horizontal ventilation duct of circular crosssection (radius of 0.25 m) with a velocity of 1.0 m/s. At the entrance it is assumed that this velocity is uniform over the entire crosssection. However, as the flow proceeds down the duct a thin laminar boundary develops on the inside wall of the duct. If we first assume that this is like the boundary layer on a flat plate and that the velocity away from the boundary layer remains at 1.0 m/s, find the displacement thickness in meters at a distance (in meters) from the entrance. Having calculated this displacement thickness we recognize that the velocity outside the boundary layer cannot remain precisely constant at 1 m/s. sing the above calculated displacement thickness, find the uniform velocity outside the boundary layer at a point 200 m from the entrance. What is the pressure difference between the entrance and this point 200 m from the entrance? Describe in words how you might now proceed to a more accurate boundary layer calculation which takes this pressure gradient into account. D = (2.7*103 m 1/2 ) 1/2 =200 m = 1.4 m/s p =200 m = N/m 2 C. Wassgren, Purdue niversity Page 9 of 17 Last pdated: 2010 Nov 22

Determine the minimum speed at which the bug will be sheared off of the car window if the bug can resist a shear stress of up to 1 N/m 2. b. What is the total skin friction drag acting on the window at a speed of = 20 m/s? c. Ignoring the presence of the bug, at what streamwise location will the boundary layer separation point occur on the window? Justify your answer. Hence, the minimum required speed to shear off the bug is 20 m/s Boundary layer separation will not occur since there is no adverse pressure gradient in the flow (zero pressure gradient was assumed).
