UNSTEADY VISCOUS FLOW

Viscous effects confined to within some finite area near the boundary boundary layerIn unsteady viscous flows at low Re the boundary layer thickness grows with time; but in periodic flows, it remains constantIf the pressure gradient is zero, Navier-Stokes equation (in x) reduces to:

Heat Equation parabolic partial differential equation - linear Requires one initial condition and two boundary conditionsUy

Total of three conditionsImpulsively started plate

Stokes first problem

Heat Equation parabolic partial differential equation Can be solved by Separation of VariablesSuppose we have a solution:

Substituting in the diff eq:

May also be written as:

Moving variables to same side:

The two sides have to be equal for any choice of x and t ,

The minus sign in front of k is for convenienceThis equation contains a pair of ordinary differential equations:

increasing time

New independent variable:

is used to transform heat equation:

Substituting into heat equation:

Alternative solution toSeparation of Variables Similarity Solutionfrom:

To transform second order into first order:

2 BC turn into 1

With solution:

Integrating to obtain u:

Or in terms of the error function:

For > 2 the error function is nearly 1, so that u 0

For > 2 the error function is nearly 1, so that u 0Then, viscous effects are confined to the region < 2This is the boundary layer
