Aspects of laminar boundary layers

Catherall, D. (1963) Aspects of laminar boundary layers. Doctoral thesis, Durham University.



This thesis consists of three parts :- Part I attempts to justify analytically some of Hartree's numerical findings for the Falkner-Skan equation and extends some of the results previously obtained by Stewartson to cover the cases of suction and injection. Part II treats the problem of the flat plate in a uniform incompressible stream when there is homogeneous normal injection through the plate. A solution of the boundary layer equations valid in the neighbourhood of the separation point is found. Part III is concerned with the numerical solution of the boundary layer equations for the problem in Part II. Results in the form of tables and graphs are given.
