In the aerospace industry the drag reduction, lift control, and noise level attenuation is very desirable. Hence, the development and use of appropriate control strategies are of much importance. The turbulent boundary layer (TBL) observed in engineering applications such as cars and airplanes become rough. This is due to the TBL thickness reduces with increase in Reynolds number value). Understanding and controlling the turbulent boundary layers is a very important phenomenon in order to increase efficiency by reducing drag. The primary reason to study the boundary layer theory is to find the friction drag. Which is calculated by evaluating how the shear stress is distributed over the surface of the wall.
