The boundary layer formation plays major role in momentum, mass and heat transfer. The concept and understanding of boundary layer is important to know the transfer phenomenon in fluids. In flow past immersed bodies, the formation of boundary layer is predominant phenomenon. Formation of boundary layer and its thickness depends on roughness, velocity of flow and fluid properties. The current review emphasizes importance of boundary layer and research and studies on boundary layers.
Key words: Stokes draft, flows, separation, shock wave, pressure, turbulence, roughness.
