A determination is reported of the second approximation to the solution of the Navier-Stokes equations for incompressible, 3-dimensional flow near the stagnation line on a swept cylinder. Using the method of matched asymptotic expansions to determine the coefficients in expansions for the flow-velocity components, pressure, temperature, crossflow at the wall, and wall concentration, the authors studied the effect of wall mass transfer on the second-approximation coefficients for longitudinal curvature and displacement. The results indicate that longitudinal curvature and displacement effects are negative and lead to decreasing values of boundary-layer characteristics.
