Default Calculating displacement and momentum thickness from Fluent

VSAndroid is on a distinguished road

I am trying to find the displacement thickness and the momemtum thickeness on a flat plate.

I have obtained the mean velocity profile at two stations in the wind tunnel and it gave the boundary layer thickness that matches experimental data.

However, I am struggling to calculate displacement and momentum thickness.

my Re value is 10^6 so the flow is Turbulent. I am guessing I will be using Turbulent boundary layer displacement momentmtum thickness equations to calculate these values right? :S

I am so confused. Please help.
