Flow over bodies with suction through porous strips Academic Article uri icon


  • This paper addresses the steady, incompressible, two-dimensional flow past a flat plate with suction through porous strips. Closed-form solutions for each flow quantity are developed in the context of linearized triple-deck theory using Fourier transforms. To demonstrate the validity of these solutions, comparisons are made of the wall shear stress and pressure coefficients and the streamwise velocity profiles and the linearized theory with those obtained by the numerical integration of both interacting and nonsimilar boundary-layer equations. Results of the comparisons are discussed.
