Constant-Pressure Boundary Layer
DNS by Spalart
The turbulent boundary layer on a flat plate, with zero pressure gradient, was simulated numerically at four stations between
= 225 to = 1410. The three-dimensional
time-dependent Navier-Stokes equations are solved using a spectral method with up to about 107 grid points. Periodic
spanwise and streamwise~ conditions are applied, and a multiple-scale procedure is applied to approximate the slow streamwise
growth of the boundary layer.
