Boundary layer on a partially moving surface
Abstract
Flow on a plate that is partially moving in the direction opposite to the flow direction is investigated in the context of the theory of an interacting laminar boundary layer. It is found that a solution to the problem exists only when the ratio of the plate velocity to the incoming flow velocity is less than 0.37. For velocity ratios less than 1, a solution can be obtained by introducing a discontinuity in the boundary layer parameters at the point of transition from the stationary to the moving part of the plate. For velocity ratios greater than 1, a solution could not be obtained.
