Abstract : An analysis of the incompressible, turbulent boundary layer, including the combined effects of mass transfer and pressure gradient is presented. An integral method employing the integral mechanical energy equation forms the basis of the analysis. Stevenson's velocity profiles are used to obtain the functional dependence of the integral properties and also obtain a skin friction law. Comparisons of the numerical results with a wide variety of experimental data, including cases where the blowing rate and pressure are varying simultaneously, show good agreement. In addition, several problems with discontinuities in blowing or suction are solved and also seen to be in good agreement with the data. (Author)
