The development of horizontal boundary layers in stratified flow. Part 2. Diffusive flow

  • L. G. Redekopp (a1)

Abstract

The boundary layer on the upper surface of a horizontal plane in a diffusive, stratified flow is examined. The analysis shows that density diffusion increases the role of the buoyancy forces and causes a significant change in the properties of the boundary layer when compared to the non-diffusive case. A uniformly valid first approximation for moderate Russell numbers is derived, and the effects of buoyancy and diffusion are evaluated by solving the resulting equations numerically.
