Abstract : This paper is concerned with regular symmetric motions of an incompressible fluid past a semi-infinite flat plate which has been immersed in a uniform parallel stream. The Navier-Stokes equations are reduced to three ordinary differential equations by local boundary layer approximations of first order. The remaining ordinary boundary value problem is numerically integrated for flows of stagnation and wake type of various Reynolds numbers. Complete numerical results are presented in tables and figures. (Author)
