Abstract

Momentum laminar boundary layers of an incompressible fluid either about a moving plate in a quiescent ambient fluid (Sakiadis flow) and the flow induced over a resting flat-plate by a uniform free stream (Blasius flow) are investigated simultaneously. The resulting similarity momentum equation is solved numerically, and the mechanical characteristics are also presented. Keywords: Laminar boundary layers; Blasius flow; Sakiadis flow.
