The present investigation has shown to be in very good agreement with a broad spectrum of numerical Navier-Stokes solutions for the flow past smoothly contoured bodies in the intermediate Reynolds number range where the body is semi-infinite or a steady laminar wake exists. The theory can be easily applied to many boundary shapes for which published numerical Navier-Stokes solutions currently do not exist. The important fundamental contribution of the study is the improved understanding of the role and construction of the displacement body and the effect of centrifugal forces in thick viscous layers.
