Entropy generation in the viscous parts of turbulent boundary layers

Abstract:

The local (pointwise) entropy generation rate per unit volume S‴ is a key to improving many energy processes and applications. Consequently, in the present study, the objectives are to examine the effects of Reynolds number and favorable streamwise pressure gradients on entropy generation rates across turbulent boundary layers on flat plates and - secondarily - to assess a popular approximate technique for their evaluation. About two-thirds or more of the entropy generation occurs in the visc...
