Thickness of thermal and velocity boundary layers on a mobile surface of a sphere Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Thickness of thermal and velocity boundary layers was studied on a mobile surface of a hypothetical solid sphere. The surface velocity of the sphere was introduced as a parameter. A relationship of thickness ratio - Prandtl number, ϵ ≃ Pr − 1 3 was obtained for the forward part of the sphere in the range Pr = 2–10.
