Finite-Difference Solution of Boundary-Layer Equations
In this chapter we consider the finite-difference solution of the thin-shearlayer equations presented in previous chapters. In Section 13.1 we present a brief review of finite-difference techniques, discussing the relative advantages of implicit and explicit methods. As a result, the implicit Box scheme is preferred, and its use in internal and external flows is described in detail in Sections 13.2 to 13.5.
