A uniformly valid asymptotic solution of the Navier-Stokes equations

  • Qin Sheng-li

In this paper, problems of the flow over a flat plate in the large Reynolds number case are studied by using the method of multiple scales[1,2]. We have obtained N-order uniformly valid asymptotic solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations.
