Falkner-Skan Flows

For the family of flows, we assume that the edge velocity, following form:

u

x = Kx

K = arbitrary constant

is of the

Some important cases:

β = 0, m = 0 : flat plat (Blasius)

β = 1, m = 1:

The boundary layer independent variable η from the Blasius solution generalizes to:
