A Neural Network Study of Blasius Equation
In this work we applied a feed forward neural network to solve Blasius equation which is a third-order nonlinear differential equation. Blasius equation is a kind of boundary layer flow. We solved Blasius equation without reducing it into a system of first order equation. Numerical results are presented and a comparison according to some studies is made in the form of their results. Obtained results are found to be in good agreement with the given studies.
