Abstract : Cebeci's viscous/inviscid interaction program was applied to the analysis of steady two-dimensional incompressible flow past a NACA 65-213 airfoil at zero angle of attack at a Reynolds number of 240,000. Predicted boundary layer characteristics were found to be quite sensitive to the choice of boundary layer transition begin and length. Good agreement with the experimental results of Hoheisel et al could be obtained by proper choice of both transition begin and length. Keywords: Airfoil flows, (Theses)
