Abstract

It is well known that the classical boundary-layer theory represents the asymptotic solution of the Navier-Stokes equations for large Reynolds numbers. The succeeding approximation is the second-order boundary layer one which includes the effects of surface curvature, vorticity interaction and boundary-layer displacement. The second-order boundary-layer effects become important when the boundarylayer thickness becomes comparable with the characteristic body length. Van Dyke [1] and Gersten and Gross [2] have given an excellent survey of higher-order boundary layers.
