The results of a momentum integral solution of the three-dimensional turbulent boundary layer on the confining wall of an impinging jet are presented. This geometry provides a boundary layer where large gradients in the streamwise and especially the transverse direction occur and hence is a severe test of momentum integral methods. The solution utilizes the Head entrainment function and the Ludwieg and Tillmann wall shear law, with no restriction on cross flows. An extensive comparison with experimental results show good to moderate agreement in the integrated flow parameters, with a strong dependence on the free-stream or edge condition to the boundary layer flow.
