Air at free-stream velocity of 9 m/s flows over a thin flat
plate of length 3 m and width 1.5 m. A laminar boundary layer
develops from the leading edge of the flat plate. At Rex = 500 000,
the boundary layer becomes a turbulent boundary layer where x is
the distance from the leading edge. ρair = 1.2 kg/m3 , μair = 1.8 x
10-5 kg/m.s (a) Estimate the length of the laminar boundary layer.
(b) Estimate the drag...

Air at a pressure of 1 atm and a temperature of 15C is in
parallel flow at a velocity of 10
m/s over a 3-m long flat plate that is heated to a uniform
temperature of 140 C.
(a) What is the average heat transfer coefficient and heat transfer
rate for the plate?
(b) What is the local heat transfer coefficient and heat flux at
the midpoint of the plate?
(c) Plot the variation of the heat flux with distance...

Air at freestream velocity U∞=16
ms, and free steam temperature
T∞=50℃ is
flowing over a plate surface that is at temperature
Ts=100℃. The velocity and thermal
boundary layers developing on the surface have been shown in the
figure. Also shown are the tangents to the velocity and temperature
profiles at the surface y=0. If the density of air is
ρ∞=1.1
kgm3, viscosity
μ=1.963×10-5kgm∙s, and
thermal conductivity k=0.0274Wm∙K then,
calculate
(a) the wall shear
stress, τw
(b) coefficient of skin
friction,...

(a) Fluid at a mass flow rate of 0.352 kg/s flows through a tube
with a diameter of 15 mm and a length of 25 m. The inner surface of
the tube is heated with a uniform heat flux of 1000 W/m2.
Measurements shown that the inlet temperature of the fluid is 30
˚C. Assume the outer surface of the tube is perfectly insulated.
Consider the thermophysical properties of the fluid are as follows:
density ρ = 1000 kg/m3, specific...
