Abstract

The axisymmetric laminar boundary layer flow along a continuously stretching cylinder immersed in a viscous and incompressible fluid is investigated. The governing partial differential boundary layer equations in cylindrical form are first transformed into ordinary differential equations before being solved numerically by a finite-difference method. The problem under consideration reduces to the flat plate case when the curvature parameter is absent, and thus the results obtained can be compared with that case which is available in the literature.
