It can be seen from Figure 9 that a perfectly mixed ABL existed at the location of the radiosonde radar and the depth of the convective boundary layer was about 2 km.
Consequently, sustained warm SSTs and enthalpy flux help support warm, moist atmospheric boundary layer conditions (via 0E), which have been shown in previous literature to aid in TC intensification.
In order to capture near wall region flow, 20 layers of boundary layer elements are created with a Y+ value near 1.
The vorticity developed over the shrinking sheet is not confined within the boundary layer and hence, a situation arises where an external force is required, which helps to confine the vorticity within the boundary layer which give rise to steady fluid flow due to a shrinking sheet (Fang, Yao, and Pop 2011).
