Falkner-Skan Flows For the family of flows, we assume that the edge velocity, is of the following form: ) ( x u e arbitrary constant = = K Kx x u m e ) ( The pressure can be calculated from the Bernoulli in the outer, inviscid flow: 1 2 2 2 . 2 1 = = = + m m e e e e e e x K dx dp dx du u dx dp const u p ρ i f 0 > m then < 0 dx dp e favorable pressure gradient i f 0 < m then > 0 dx dp e adverse pressure gradient These edge velocities result from the following inviscid flows: m m + 1 2 β y ) ( x u e y x π π β ) ( x u e 0 = x Flow around a corner (diffusion) Wedge flow 0 2 β 2 0
