Turbulent Skin Friction on Axial Compressor Blading
MetadataShow full item record
Measurements of turbulent boundary layers in strongly-decelerating flow on axial compressor blades operating at low Reynolds numbers have indicated skin friction values differing by as much as 50% from the predictions of conventional friction laws. A new friction law incorporating strong pressure gradient and longitudinal acceleration effects in the wall layer has been found capable of describing the observed behavior.
