# Recovery Factor Boundary Layer

**Adiabatic wall temperature is the temperature acquired by a wall in liquid or gas flow if the condition of thermal insulation is observed on it.**

**Recovery factor boundary layer**.
0 008 for reynolds numbers from 2 1 x 10 superscript 4 to 5 4 x 10 superscript 5.
It is denoted as either t r or t eq and is sometimes called an equilibrium temperature and in aerodynamics a recovery temperature a distinction between the adiabatic wall temperature and a characteristic flow temperature.
On the basis of equations of motion and energy for a steady two dimensional laminar boundary layer with constant physical properties a recovery function is obtained whose value at the wall in the adiabatic case becomes that of the recovery factor.

In the transitional region of the boundary layer a maximum recovery factor 0 5 to 1 higher than the turbulent value was obtained. The turbulent recovery factor can be represented by the cube root of the prandtl number for a prandtl number calculated at wall conditions. For this range of reynolds numbers the recovery factor was found to be independent of the reynolds number.

The local temperature recovery factors for the laminar boundary layer were determined to be 0 844. 2296 february 1951 includes bibliographical references the analysis indicates that recovery factor decreased with increasing mach number. Furthermore it was found that boundary layer history.

The oil recovery factors during alkaline injection into the sand models and shale models at different injection rates pressure gradients are presented in table 11 7 the pressure gradient is calculated using the injection well block i 1 pressure minus the production well block i 11 pressure divided by the distance between these blocks in the middle layer k 2. Strictly however this modification is in conflict with the conservation of energy principle. In the transitional region of the boundary layer a maximum recovery factor 0 5 to 1 higher than the turbulent value was obtained.

The effect of prandtl number is usually incorporated by assuming a constant recovery factor across the entire boundary layer. In the case of similar currents the recovery factor can be calculated by values of the prandtl number between 0 and 1000. It describes that for an adiabatic wall the total enthalpy remains constant throughout the boundary layer when the prandtl number pr is one irrespective of pressure gradient and compressibility a generalization of the crocco relation for pr near one is obtained from a perturbation.

Boundary layer history had a marked effect on the value of the recovery factor. The turbulent recovery factor can be represented by the cube root of the prandtl number for a prandtl number calculated at wall conditions. A numerical investigation of the boundary layer on a permeable wall in a supersonic gas flow is performed using a differential turbulence model.
