Abstract : An analysis is presented of the nonsimilar laminar boundary layer flow of a radiating gas over a flat plate. It is assumed that the radiative properties are those for a grey gas and that no chemical reactions occur in the flow. An in tegral method is applied to the governing equations wherein the profiles of flow variables are chosen for their simplicity and their applicability to a two layer approach. Four parameters are left free in the assumed profiles: one in the velocity profile, two in the temperature profile, and a scale parameter between the two profiles. Different envelopes of dynamic and energetic effects are recognized thereby. A system of first order, nonlinear, ordinary differential equations describing the chordwise variation of profile parameters is presented and the solution to this system discussed. (Author)
