An existing integral boundary layer calculation procedure is modified to predict turbulent boundary layers developing in a turbulent freestream. Extra terms in both the turbulence model equation and the momentum integral equation are introduced to account for the effects of freestream turbulence. Good agreement with flat plate boundary layer measurements in a turbulent freestream has been obtained, while comparison with measurements in a severe adverse pressure gradient shows qualitative agreement with experiments.
