An analytical model for the time-developing turbulent boundary layer (TD TBL) over a flat plate is presented. The model provides explicit formulae for the temporal behavior of the wall-shear stress and both the temporal and spatial distributions of the mean streamwise velocity, the turbulence kinetic energy and Reynolds shear stress. The resulting profiles are in good agreement with the DNS results of spatially-developing turbulent boundary layers at momentum thickness Reynolds numbers equal to 1430 and 2900 [5–7]. Our analytical model is, to the best of our knowledge, the first of its kind for TD TBL.
