A comparison of experimental results derived from analyses of turbulent binary boundary layer flow-among them, analyses of Dorrance and Dore, Rubesin, and van Driest. The factors considered are heat transfer, skin friction, the effect of pressure gradient, recovery, the addition of foreign gases, mixing length, and the influence of molecular weight.
