Question 13) A boundary layer is a thin region (usually along a wall)in which viscous forces are significant and within which the flow is rotational. Consider a boundary layer growing along a thin flat plate. The flow is steady. The boundary layer thickness d (m) at any downstream distance x is a function of x (m), free-stream velocity V(m/s)', fluid properties fluid density p (kg m³), fluid viscosity µ (kgm.s), sound velocity c (m/s) and surface roughness & (m). i-Use the method of repeating variables to generate a dimensionless relationship between boundary layer thickness & (m) and other parameters.
