Using composite structures, boundary layer ingestion, and high levels of autonomy, the D8 can provide up to 50 percent reductions in fleet-wide fuel burn over designs currently in use.
It was built in the mid 1980s to be fully operational 1986 and was upgraded with a more powerful fan and a five belt boundary layer control system (BLCS) in 2006, as described by Sterneus et al.
In those cases you can use jets, bubblers, or baffles to generate the localized velocity necessary to break up the boundary layer.
In the first region, the direction of fluid flow inside the boundary layer and parallel to the plate buoyancy force component converge, while in the second one these directions are opposite.
As for complex topography, the pioneering approach was to investigate the boundary layer properties over gentle hills (less than 10% slope, say) using a linearization approach (Hunt et al.
Luther does take a naturalist's look at the mosses, fungi and lichens that occupy the terrestrial boundary layer, and it is a good introduction to these often overlooked plants.
The distance of resistance temperature detectors can be varied along the thermal boundary layer of annulus space.
Consider a steady, 2D laminar, mixed convection boundary layer flow of an incompressible viscous fluid near a stagnation-point along a vertical plate in the presence of magnetic field through a porous medium as exposed in Figure 1.
This work examines the MHD mixed convection boundary layer flow through porous media due to porous non-linearly shrinking surface.

Covering first irrotational flow motion of an ideal fluid, then the theory and applications of real fluid flows, he discusses such topics as ideal fluid flows and irrotational flow motion; basic equations and flow analogies for two-dimensional flows; Joukowski transformation, the theorem of Kutta-Jourkowski, and lift force on an airfoil; and turbulence, and applying boundary layer theory to laminar boundary layer flows.
This backing is confined to a layer in the atmosphere known as the planetary boundary layer, or just simply the boundary layer.
The computational domain was then discretised using trimmed hexahedral cells in the volume, with a prismatic boundary layer mesh near the surface to capture the boundary layer flow.
