A numerical method is proposed to study the laminar boundary layer about a flat plate in a uniform stream of fluid. The presented method is based on the quartic B-spline approximations with minimizing the error L2-norm. Theoretical considerations are discussed. The computed results are compared with some numerical results to show the efficiency of the proposed approach.

Abstract


A numerical method is proposed to study the laminar boundary layer about a flat plate in a uniform stream of fluid. The presented method is based on the quartic B-spline approximations with minimizing the error L2-norm. Theoretical considerations are discussed. The computed results are compared with some numerical results to show the efficiency of the proposed approach.
