A single boundary layer model to account for transient viscous effects is applied to small amplitude sinusoidally disturbed turbulent flow in a tube. The viscous dissipation is calculated using a transfer function relating the local boundary layer velocity gradient to the core velocity. A simple expression for the attenuation factor is derived and the analytical results are shown to be in excellent agreement with previously reported experimental data.
