Nature Edit Frank E. Fish states that dolphins appear to have a turbulent boundary layer to reduce the likelihood of separation and minimize drag, and that mechanisms for maintaining a laminar boundary layer to reduce skin friction have not been demonstrated for dolphins. Roughening causes the boundary layer to become turbulent and remain attached farther round the back before breaking away with a smaller wake than would otherwise be the case.
Balls may be struck in different ways to give them spin which makes them follow a curved path. The spin causes boundary layer separation to be biased to one side which produces a side force.
BL control roughening was applied to golf balls in the 19th century. The stitching on cricket balls and baseballs acts as a boundary layer control structure. The side moving against the flow also exhibits only partial separation of the boundary layer.
Suction applied through a slit in the cylinder near a separation point can also delay the onset of separation by removing fluid particles that have been slowed in the boundary layer. Alternatively, fluid can be blown from a faired slit such that the slowed fluid is accelerated and thus the point of separation is delayed.
Maintaining a laminar boundary layer on aircraft Edit Laminar flow airfoils were developed in the s by shaping to maintain a favourable pressure gradient to prevent them becoming turbulent.
Their low-drag wind tunnel results led to them being used on aircraft such as the P and B but maintaining laminar flow required low levels of surface roughness and waviness not routinely found in service.
Implementing laminar flow in high-Reynolds-number applications generally requires very smooth, wave-free surfaces, which can be difficult to produce and maintain. Fuselage-mounted engine intakes are sometimes equipped with a splitter plate.
It is capable of STOL operation and very low air speeds[ original research?
Types of boundary layer[ edit ] Boundary layer visualization, showing transition from laminar to turbulent condition Laminar boundary layers can be loosely classified according to their structure and the circumstances under which they are created. The thin shear layer which develops on an oscillating body is an example of a Stokes boundary layer , while the Blasius boundary layer refers to the well-known similarity solution near an attached flat plate held in an oncoming unidirectional flow and Falkner—Skan boundary layer , a generalization of Blasius profile. When a fluid rotates and viscous forces are balanced by the Coriolis effect rather than convective inertia , an Ekman layer forms. In the theory of heat transfer, a thermal boundary layer occurs.
