Abstract : The objective of the thesis was to simulate steady, uniform, laminar flow over a plane surface with zero pressure gradient. Design parameters and requirements for the flow field and construction of the free surface water channel are discussed. Data acquisition was accomplished by means of the hydrogen bubble technique; and, once acquired was used to obtain a normalized velocity profile. An uncertainty analysis on the acquisition method and a comparison of the experimental results with the solution obtained by Blasius are presented. (Author)
