The major focus of 16.thirteen is on boundary layers, and boundary film theory topic to different flow assumptions, such as compressibility, turbulence, dimensionality, and additionally heat transfer. Guidelines influencing aerodynamic flows and additionally transition and additionally influence of boundary layers in outer possible flow are offered, along alongside associated stall and additionally drag mechanisms. Numerical solution skills and exercises are included.
