Secondorder effects in selfsimilar laminar compressible boundarylayer flows
Abstract
Secondorder effects associated with longitudinal curvature, transverse curvature, entropy gradients, stagnation enthalpy gradient, velocity slip, temperature jump and displacement speed in selfsimilar twodimensional and axisymmetric flows of a compressible fluid are studied. The selfsimilar governing equations for secondorder effects show that the four parameters, due to longitudinal curvature, transverse curvature, displacement and body shape are needed to describe the flow. Numerical solutions and several closed form solutions are obtained. The present study is found to contain all the previous studies in the selfsimilar domain as special cases.
