 November 7, 2004, 02:37 Blasius equation. #1 Lawal Guest   Posts: n/a Can anyone kindly tell me how to use Finite-diffence method to solve Blasius's equation of laminar boundary layer (2f''' + ff'' = 0). I have consulted many text-books but the numerical method is not used to solve the equation. I needed any online text or idea to quickly fix this. Thanks, Lawal

 November 7, 2004, 04:30 Re: Blasius equation. #4 Junseok Kim Guest   Posts: n/a Sorry for the confusion, 2f''' + ff'' = 0 You can set z = -0.5 f y y = f'' x = f' and use, for example, Runge-Kutta method for the time or space marching.

 November 8, 2004, 05:42 Re: Blasius equation. #5 Tom Guest   Posts: n/a The standard way to solve this equation is to use central differences to obtain a nonlinear set of equations which you can solve using Newton iteration. An alternative is to use a Runge-Kutta and the "shooting" method, Tom.

I have done this long time ago myself, don't have the book or my own notes handy, and don't have enough time to start working on this now. If you can find White's book, and still have some questions or run into problems, I may be able to provide some help at that point. -- Jarmo
