Abstract : The solution of the incompressible, turbulent boundary-layer equations using the method of weighted residuals is investigated. This method seeks to obtain an approximate solution of a partial differential equation with given boundary conditions by assuming the solution in functional form so that the boundary conditions for one variable are exactly satisfied. The approximating function is then specialized in such a manner as to obtain approximate satisfaction of the given equation. (Author)
