Abstract

Turbulent mixing layers emanating from slanted trailing edges or nozzles evolve in a manner that is explainable by applying the independence principle to boundary layer flows. Although measurements downstream of a planar chevron splitter plate validate the concept, the intent of this short article is to re-examine the broader ramifications of this observation. Turbulent boundary layer growth on a yawed flat plate is re-examined as is the attached flow direction near the trailing edge of a highly swept-back wing.
