Abstract : The Orr-Sommerfeld equation, which governs the stability of parallel flows, was solved by a numerical technique. Neutral stability curves were obtained for three different problems. The first problem is concerned with the effect of a flexible wall on the stability of the boundary layer on a flat plate. The second problem is concerned with the stability of magnetohydrodynamic channel flow with an aligned magnetic field. The last problem deals with the stability of Couette-Poiseuille flow. (Author)
