It is however pretty hard to find, infact I searched several University libraries now and could not find it. If you look hard enough you will! However, a more important question is why you are using stream-function vorticity methods? They have pretty much all been replaced by primitive variable formulations. This is because they do not extend well to 3-D and (as you have nodoubt noticed) are a challenge to formulate appropriate boundary conditions. This is probably something you should discuss with your advisor? Regards, Bak_Flow

Regards, Khairy

It has been a number of years since I read it so do not recall the limitations ie, laminar, steady, any additional scalar equations solved, etc. It may be a useful start for you, however. Good luck, Bak_Flow
