Boundary Layer Codes for Students in Java, Version 2.1

Here we present JAVA computer codes that are intended for student use solving boundary-layer problems in a text such as "Boundary Layer Analysis, Second Edition" by J. A. Schetz and R.D.W. Bowersox (AIAA, 2011) or boundary-layer convection problems in a text such as "Heat Transfer" by J. P. Holman (McGraw Hill, 1986) and other similar tasks. These codes are specifically not intended as general purpose codes for use by working professionals in the field. The goal has been to keep the formulation, logic and programming as simple as possible so that the student can easily grasp the flow of the calculations. There are eight separate codes

- ILBLI which computes incompressible laminar boundary layers by an implicit numerical method.
- ITBL which computes incompressible turbulent boundary layers by an implicit numerical method.
- WALZ which computes incompressible laminar boundary layers using the Thwaites-Walz integral method.
- MOSES which computes incompressible turbulent boundary layers using Moses' method.
- WALZHT which computes incompressible laminar boundary layers with heat transfer using the Thwaites-Walz / Smith Spalding integral methods.
- MOSESHT which computes incompressible turbulent boundary layers using Moses' method extended to include heat transfer.
- CLBL which computes compressible laminar boundary layers by an implicit numerical method.
- CTBL which computes compressible turbulent boundary layers using an implicit numerical method.
- JETMIX which computes jet mixing problems in turbulent, incompressible flow using an implicit numerical method.
