    BOUNDARY LAYER SEPARATION

    BOUNDARY LAYER SEPARATION When fluid flows past a body (cylinder or an airplane), fluid is accelerated due to pressure drop and ∂p/∂x is negative. Pressure decreases as distance x increases. When ∂p/∂x becomes zero, velocity decreases and separation of flow occurs and back flow is just to start. At the point of separation, the following […]
