The paper presents an integral method to predict turbulent boundary layer behavior in two-dimensional, incompressible flow. The method is based on the momentum and moment-of-momentum integral equations and a friction law. By means of the compiled data of the 1968 Stanford Conference, the results show that the integral of the turbulent shear stress across the boundary layer, which appears in the moment-of-momentum integral equation, can be described using only two basic assumptions for all cases of flow.
