Slip flow past a stretching surface. (English) Zbl 1013.76020

Summary: We consider the slip-flow of Newtonian fluid past a linearly stretching sheet. The partial slip is controlled by a dimensionless slip factor which varies between zero (total adhesion) and infinity (full slip). An exact analytical solution of the governing Navier-Stokes equations is found, which is formally valid for all Reynolds numbers.
