hello....

i have written code for boundary layer eqns over flat plate, and its working fine.

now i need to compare my results with blasius solution, so where or how can i get the data for analytical blasius solution.

thanks in advance

i don't get it....
look my free stream velocity is 100,
pressure and density are sea level value...

i need to plot boundary layer profile @ different values of x...

or basically i need to calculate f' @ different values of x along the flat plate... so how can i calculate f'....

isn't there any site where i can directly get the data files, or data.

This may be what you want.

You can download a code that computes the Blasius solution (u,v,f,f',f'') at a 'given' point in the domain:

Good luck.

Dear Sir.
I wrote a Matlab code for solving Blasius eq( f'''+0.5f*f''=0 ,f(0)=f'(0)=0,f'(inf)=1 )
1. I cannot write a function state , Matlab errors me y hasn't defined!?

2. how we replace f''(0)=0.322 instead of f'(inf)=1 ?


Can u help me ?
pls

In order to solve Blasius in Matlab you need to discretize your solution with a Finite Differences formula, or to write the equation as a system of 3 ordinary differential equations and use one of the ODE solvers available in Matlab.

The trick is described in this book -> http://www.cfdbooks.com

Anyway, use f''(0)=0.3320573362151946, and solve the system of ODE.

Good luck.

Dear DoHander

Have u write the code?
How can I write 3 ordinary differential equation?
I've written this code :

function dy = state(t,y)
dy = zeros(3,1); % a column vector
dy(1) = y(2);
dy(2) = y(3);
dy(3)=-0.5*y(1)*y(3);

but MatLab says that u have to input y ?


Best regards

Sorry, the link was in error. Try this one.
http://www.ossanworld.com/cfdbooks/cfdbooks.html

It's a book called "I do like CFD, VOL.1" which I personaly find very useful.

Or you can use or consult the code posted on that website,
which is this:
http://www.ossanworld.com/cfdbooks/c...blasius_v1.f90

Hello.
I wrote a code for blasius equation(2f'''+ff''=0) and i got the answers.
I want to find vertical velocity(v),but the velocity profile of v did not match with what really happen,Because out of boundary layer,there should be v=0,but using solution of Blasius Equation,v is inequal to 0.
How could I solve this problem??
