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 varun

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: http://www.ossanworld.com/cfdbooks/cfdcodes.html Good luck. gory

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. gory Last edited by gory; May 2, 2010 at 18:10.

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 Regards, gory

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??
