Supersonic inviscid compressible flows require the same number of inlet boundary conditions as viscous flows, but do not admit any outflow boundary conditions because the flow is hyperbolic. 13 boundary conditions on any fluid/fluid boundary in the far field. Issa and Lockwood’s work (1977) reported the solution of a shock/boundary layer interaction problem where part of the far field boundary conditions are obtained from an inviscid solution performed prior to the viscous solution. The usual (viscous) outlet condition ∂ (ρun)/∂n = 0 is applied on the remainder of the far field boundary.

The three-dimensional form of Newton’s law of viscosity for compressible flows involves two constants of proportionality: the first (dynamic) viscosity, µ, to relate stresses to linear deformations, and the second viscosity, λ, to relate stresses to the volumetric deformation. 31) Not much is known about the second viscosity λ, because its effect is small in practice. For gases a good working approximation can be obtained by taking the value λ = − –23 µ (Schlichting, 1979). Liquids are incompressible so the mass conservation equation is div u = 0 and the viscous stresses are just twice the local rate of linear deformation times the dynamic viscosity.

The velocity fluctuations are found to give rise to additional stresses on the fluid, the so-called Reynolds stresses. 6. 7. 9 we give a brief summary of direct numerical simulation (DNS). 1 What is turbulence? First we take a brief look at the main characteristics of turbulent flows. The Reynolds number of a flow gives a measure of the relative importance of inertia forces (associated with convective effects) and viscous forces. 1 WHAT IS TURBULENCE? 41 of fluid slide past each other in an orderly fashion.
