Annotation Study course ``Theory of Boundary Layer `` is planned for extended studies of heat and mass transfer, fluid mechanics and aerodynamic theory and practical applications. The main emphasis is on the convective heat exchange and the related phenomena of flow mechanics. Basic topics: Hydrodynamic and thermal boundary layers. Laminar, transient and turbulent flows. Viscosity, compressible and incompressible flows. Differential equations of flow dynamics and heat mass transfer. Boundary layer evaluation and empirical relationships. Analytical and numerical methods for solving equations. Modeling and simulation methods. Empirical methods of heat exchange and flow mechanics..
