Hello!

I need some help with a problem:

Problem: Turbulent flow beteween parallel flat plates.

It is defined:

[ tex ] \tau = \mu \frac{d\bar{u}}{dy}-\rho\bar{u'v'} [ \tex ]

The exercise gives that [ tex ] \tau = a y [ \tex ] and [ tex ] \rho\bar{u'v'} = \frac{by}{c+dy^2} [ \tex ], where [ tex ] a,b,c,d[ \tex ] are constants.

I need to know: How can I choose these constants? I'm looking for an aproximate solution.

Until now, I used just the no-slip condition at [ tex ] \pm H [ \tex ] and [ tex ] \frac{du(y=0)}{dy}=0 [ \tex ]

Tks for the help!

2. Relevant equations

[ tex ] \tau = \mu \frac{d\bar{u}}{dy}-\rho\bar{u'v'} [ \tex ]

[ tex ] \tau = a y [ \tex ]

[ tex ] \rho\bar{u'v'} = \frac{by}{c+dy^2} [ \tex ]
