This lesson covers the concept of Thwaites Approximation in fluid dynamics, focusing on the calculation of momentum thickness, displacement thickness, boundary layer thickness, wall shear stress, and friction coefficient. The lesson explains how Thwaites used experimental data to propose correlations for these parameters, which are crucial from a design perspective. The lesson also discusses the Momentum Integral Equation and the concept of the shape factor. The lesson further delves into the shear correlation and shape factor correlation proposed by Holstein and Bohlen. The lesson concludes with the application of Thwaites Approximation to Howard's decelerating flow, demonstrating how to calculate the point of flow separation.
