The state of a boundary layer on a horisontal flat plate with a concave section is determined, on the one hand, by the action of centrifugal forces and, on the other hand, by the variable pressure gradient. The present work is an attempt to analyse the joint influence of these factors on the boundary layer development and as a result to find possibilities of it’s structure control.
