Relations are derived for the boundary layer momentum thickness growth in channels with adverse pressure gradients and for the maximum allowable momentum thickness to avoid flow separation. These data are obtained by integrating the Truckenbrodt equation stepwise and by extending the Gruschwitz-Schmidbauer separation criterion. Fair agreement between calculated data and test information is demonstrated.
