52) To get the maximum dynamic pressure along the x-axis, select y = 0 and z = 0 in Eq. 52, resulting in the following relationship •2 f f T \ BDn \ T = erf erf {>[2-b>J u, v4l-b) U„ (53) Hence, the velocity decay relationship works out as, erf Bn 42-b) erf [S-b (54) At any distance x in the downstream direction, the velocity distribution u/um0 can be obtatined by suitably combining Eqs. 52 and 53. Figure 12. 2 Heat Flux Let the instantaneous absolute temperature T be expressed as T = T0+AT, where T0 is a reference temperature independent of x or r, and AT is the temperature excess which depends both on x and r.

Region 2: The flow in this region is influenced by both the bed and side walls. This is the corner region. The proposed model assumed that the log-law and one seventh power law are valid independently in both vertical and horizontal directions. 17 or 18. y = in which U zy = u yz /u. z ,u«z = shear velocity at a height of z on the side wall and Y«z = yu*z/v. 52 K. V. N. Sarma and B. V. R. Prasad Region 3: The velocity distribution in the vertical direction in this region requires to be modified to take into account the phenomenon of dip.
