Abstract

A new and relatively simple description is proposed for the velocity profile in turbulent flow close to a smooth wall. Heat transfer coefficients are calculated from the description and are shown to agree better with experiment than other theories. The analysis is extended to transport processes in liquids where the viscosity has a large variation close to the wall.
