One of the basic goals in engineering is to generate models which will provide a means for analytically predicting observed phenomenon. Such a model is often modified several times to obtain better results. The purpose of this study was to generate a model for an equilibrium turbulent boundary layer for steady flow over a flat plate and compare the results obtained by using the model with experimental data. Part of the objective was to also suggest ways in which the model could be modified to obtain better results.
