A note on the wall-jet problem II

  • D.J. Needham
  • J.H. Merkin


The wall-jet problem described in a previous paper in which the effects of suction through the wall and the wall moving were allowed so as to still satisfy the momentum condition for the wall jet is considered further. It is shown that, as well as the upper branch of solutions which were obtained previously, there is a lower branch of solutions, all of which have a region of reversed flow next to the wall.
