abstract

  • A straight-forward and general finite-difference solution of the boundary layer equations is presented. Several problems are examined for laminar flow conditions. These include velocity and temperature boundary layers over a flat plate, linearly retarded flows and several cases of suction or injection. The results obtained are in excellent agreement with existing accurate solutions. It appears that any kind of steady, two-dimensional boundary layer problem can be solved thus with accuracy and speed.
