Computational fluid dynamics simulation of the boundary layer over a flat plate

The concept of the boundary layer was first introduced by Prandtl in 1904 in his boundary layer hypothesis (Prandtl, 1904). This paper revolutionized the analysis of viscous flows. “The boundary layer is the thin region of flow adjacent to a surface, where the flow is retarded by the influence of friction between a solid surface and the fluid” (Anderson, 2011, p. 966). It only occurs in viscous flows and is the physical phenomenon of skin friction and aerodynamic heating of the surface and hence the knowledge of the boundary layer is critical for the calculation of drag.
