Abstract:

Numerical solutions of three-parameter vortex flows over flat surfaces and of rotating flows of von Karmans and Bodewadts types are presented for a variety of Reynolds numbers. The results have been obtained on the basis of an extended boundary-layer theory, which allows a reduction of the Navier-Stokes equations to a set of Volterra integral equations. The new flows are in good agreement with available physical observations.
