Abstract

The problem of the turbulent boundary layer of a stationary mature hurricane with an assigned distribution of the tangential velocity is examined. The system of equations of dynamics was closed by the equation for turbulence energy. The mixing length was profiled over the height and radius as applied to the problem. The formulated system of equations was solved by a numerical method based on the use of the momentum theorem. The results obtained correspond to known experimental data. The effect of various types of approximation in equations of dynamics on the results obtained is shown.
