Two-Dimensional Non-similar Flows

Part of the Mathematical Engineering book series (MATHENGIN)


In the previous part, it has been seen that the wall velocities either follow the power law or the exponential forms in order to ensure the self-similar solution. Particular to the two-dimensional case, all other forms of the wall velocities result in the nonsimilar flows. In this chapter, the nonsimilar formulation for the planar two-dimensional case has been presented. As an examplary case, the accelerated and decelerated wall velocities of Howarth's type has been investigated in detail.
