Zusammenfassung

Die Lösung des Systems der nichtlinearen partiellen Differentialgleichungen der laminaren kompressiblen Grenzschicht bereitet erhebliche mathematische Schwierigkeiten. In dieser Arbeit wird ein Differenzenverfahren benutzt, um die Strömung entlang einer gekrümmten Wand zu untersuchen. Analytische Bedingungen für seine Stabilität sind angegeben, und die Konvergenz der Lösung gegen die Lösung des Differentialgleichungssystems ist durch Vergleichsrechnungen mit verschiedener Schrittweite erprobt.

Der Einfluss von beliebigen Druck- und Temperaturverteilungen ist an einer Reihe von Beispielen untersucht. Da das Verfahren Energiedissipation und Veränderlichkeit der Dichte und der Zähigkeit vollständig berücksichtigt, sind seine Ergebnisse benutzt, um die Vereinfachungen kritisch zu diskutieren, die so oft angewendet werden, um die analytische Lösung des Problems zu erleichtern.
