The numerical integration of laminar boundary layer equations
Abstract
The problem considered involves the twodimensional, steady flow of an incompressible Newtonian fluid along a semiinfinite plate. The solution of the problem is selfsimilar. The velocity profile with respect to the distance from the plate will only change when the distance to the leading edge of the plate is altered. Attention is given to automorphism and normalization, the transfer of the third boundary condition, and the first and the second reduction of the differential equation.
