CSE-906 Boundary Layer Theory
Campus RCMS
Programs PG
Session Spring Semester 2017
Course Title Boundary Layer Theory
Course Code CSE-906
Credit Hours 3-0
Pre-Requisutes None
Course Objectives
  • Students will develop a basic understanding of viscous flows in general, and boundary layer flows, in particular.
  • They will be capable of recognizing particular difficulties associated with these flows and conditions under which valid simplifications can be made so that solutions can be obtained of an appropriate accuracy.
Detail Content Outcomes:
  • Students will learn how to use a variety of methods for solving viscous and boundary layer flow problems, including the adverse effects of phenomena such as the separation of the flow around an airfoil.
  • The methods will include analytic techniques, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and wind tunnel experiments.
Course Contents:
  • Exact solution of viscous flows
  • Laminar boundary layers
  • Laminar-Turbulent transition
  • Turbulent boundary layers
  • Boundary layer separation
  • Numerical solutions of boundary layer flows
