In the oral portion his Ph.D. general exam, John is struggling to
recall how to obtain the boundary layer profile for flow past an infinite flat
plate. The location where the boundary layer begins its transition to
turbulent is also needed. Could you help him out?
The free stream water speed is 10 m/s.
Determine the location where the boundary
layer begins its transition from laminar to turbulent. Plot the
Assume the flow is steady, two-dimensional and laminar (i.e., Blasius'
solution is valid).
Assume the water temperature is 16oC.
