1 MECH 371 Boundary Layer Theory: Exact Solution MECH 371 Boundary Layer Theory To start the derivation of the Falkner-Skan and Blasius equations, we must come up for an expression of the flow external to the boundary layer on a plane surface. Let's say there's a possible potential flow solution in polar coordinates: ! r, " ( ) = C r m + 1 sin m + 1 ( ) " # \$ % & where ! satisfies the Laplace Eq. 2 ! = 0 ( ! is a valid potential flow solution. The radial streamlines act as walls for a wedge (ramp flow), expansion corner or convergent-divergent wedge (Jeffery-Hamel flow). We'll define ) as ) = 2m m + 1 ( ) . Then Inviscid Flow Past Wedges and Corners
