The Laminar Flat Plate Boundary Layer Solution of Blasius (Example 10-10, Ç engel and Cimbala) We go through the steps of the boundary layer procedure: Step 1 : The outer flow is U ( x ) = U = V = constant. In other words, the outer flow is simply a uniform stream of constant velocity. Step 2 : A very thin boundary layer is assumed (so thin that it does not affect the outer flow). In other words, the outer flow does not even know that the boundary layer is there. Step 3 : The boundary layer equations must be solved; they reduce to This equation set was first solved by P. R. H. Blasius in 1908 – numerically, but by hand

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
