Husein is on a distinguished road

In this tutorial of flow over a flat plate I noticed that the farfield BC has been given as symmetry. I guess that is incorrect. It should be outflow on both the sides where flow is exiting the domain. Also theoretically, the velocity at boundary layer thickness should be 99% of the free stream, whereas in this case it is more than the free stream. Im guessing it has become a plane poiseulle flow, hence the Max. V in centre.

Kindly verify. Regards.
