Twostream mixing  A variational solution
Abstract
The mixing of two initially semiinfinite uniform streams of different velocities is a simple representation of the general problem of viscous mixing. A variational analysis is used to find a solution for such mixing. The concept of the local potential provides an additional condition so that an analytic solution may be obtained. The variational methods are successfully applied to several boundary layer problems.
