"Turbulent Shear Flow: Analytic Result for a Universal Amplitude"
In the turbulent boundary layer above a flat plate, the velocity profile is known to be proportional to the logarithm of the plate separation distance. We will arrive at this experimental observation from theoretical arguments and will give an estimate of the proportionality constant, which happens to be a universal number. The final calculations will be compared with experimental data."
