Steady, viscous, two-dimensional and axially symmetric stagnation-point flows of a gas are considered for the case when the Reynolds number is too low for the applicability of the classical boundary-layer theory. It is assumed that the low-density gas is still a continuous fluid, permitting the use of the Navier-Stokes and as associated equations as the basis of the problem. The effects of low Reynolds number are determined by applying an expansion procedure to the fluid dynamical equations.
