Abstract

This thesis is concerned with a study of the turbulent boundary layer in the corner region of a curved duct. The pressure-driven secondary flow is investigated by experiments and calculations. Measurements of pressure distribution and mean-velocity components are made at three streamwise stations in the convex corner of a curved duct and the results are compared with calculations using a finite-difference numerical method.
