Abstract:

An integral method for calculating the nonsimilar steady two-dimensional boundary-layer development on both upstream and downstream moving walls has been developed. Separation from moving walls is briefly reviewed and a separation criterion for the technique is developed that conforms with some accepted ideas on boundary-layer separation. The integral-momentum and integral-energy boundary-layer equations have been integrated simultaneously by using the shape factor relationships derived from moving-wall similarity solutions. The results are found to compare favorably with an exact solution and an approximate solution. The stability of the boundary-layer development calculations is also examined.
