Boundary Layer Thickness at the Trailing Edge

In order to calculate the boundary layer thickness at the trailing edge we consider the flow of air over a small flat plate at sea-level conditions and assume laminar flow.



In order to calculate the boundary layer thickness,

we require,


The Length in flow direction in meters (m)

The width in meters (m)

The Flow velocity in meters/sec


Performing the calculation gives us the value of Reynolds number and the value of the boundary layer thickness. The boundary layer thickness is denoted by delta.
