Abstract:

An analytical study of the application of the Karman-Pohlhausen method to the extended boundary layer equations at low Reynolds number was made. The extended boundary layer equations were the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations with the assumption of zero normal pressure gradient. A comparison was made between the solutions for the extended boundary layer equations and the boundary layer equations at several Reynolds numbers for flow over a flat plate, flow near a stagnation point, and flow over a circular cylinder.
