Abstract : An experimental and theoretical study of three-dimensional boundary layers on bodies of revolution at incidence was conducted during the period May 1980-July 1983. This final report summarizes the technical accomplishments. Reference is made to previous reports and papers resulting from the study and some recent experimental results on the boundary layer in the plane of symmetry and the vortex formation region are presented. One of the primary objectives of this study was to develop instrumentation for the measurement of the mean flow and the Reynolds stresses in three-dimensional turbulent boundary layers, and to use these to supplement the mean-flow measurements made earlier by Ramaprian, Patel and Choi on the combination body at an incidence of 15 degrees.
