Serial Information: Journal of the Hydraulics Division, 1958, Vol. 84, Issue 3, Pg. 1-17

Document Type: Journal Paper


Method for predicting behavior of turbulent boundary layer in smooth walled diffuser based on analysis in two distinct regions as suggested by Ross, involving only solution of algebraic equations; two tests conducted on 10° total angle diffuser with different thicknesses of initial boundary layer; data given to test applicability of method for boundary layer calculations.
