ANALYSIS OF LAMINAR BOUNDARY-LAYER FLOW OVER A MOVING WEDGE USING A UNIFORM HAAR WAVELET METHOD

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In this paper, we study the characteristics of laminar boundary-layer flow of a viscous incompressible fluid over a moving wedge. The transformed boundary-layer equation given by the Falkner-Skan equation is solved by an efficient easy-to-use approximate method based on uniform Haar wavelets in conjunction with quasilinearization and collocation approach. The residual and error estimates are computed to confirm the validity of the obtained results. A meaningful comparison between the present solutions with existing numerical results in the literature is carried out to highlight the benefits and efficiency of proposed method. Furthermore, the influence of variable pressure gradient and the wedge velocity parameter are discussed and illustrated through graphs. The Haar wavelet approach discovers a rich structure of multiple solutions for various range of physical parameters.
