Extensions to the Prandtl Boundary-Layer Theory

Abstract

In the previous chapters we have already made mention of higher order boundary-layer theory on some different occasions. This theory treats the effects which were not taken into account in the boundary-layer equations used up until now. They will now be included in an extension to the Prandtl boundary-layer theory to a higher order boundary-layer theory. In acquiring this theory we will simultaneously be able to achieve statements about the region of validity of the Prandtl boundary-layer theory.
