Abstract

"Three-dimensional laminar and turbulent separated flow and heat transfer in plane symmetric sudden expansion and plane backward facing step is examined in this dissertation. In Papers I, II, and III, simulations of 3-D laminar forced convection in plane symmetric expansion is studied...In Paper IV, 3-D turbulent flow measurements using Laser Doppler Velocimeter are made in a backward facing step flow and the three velocity components and the Reynolds stresses are measured in the separated and redeveloping flow region...In Paper V, the 2-D behavior of a thin film that is shear driven by turbulent air flow is simulated"--Abstract, page iv.
