Analysis of viscous flow due to a stretching sheet with surface slip and suction. (English) Zbl 1154.76330

Summary: The viscous flow due to a stretching sheet with slip and suction is studied. The Navier-Stokes equations admit exact similarity solutions. For two-dimensional stretching a closed-form solution is found and uniqueness is proved. For axisymmetric stretching both existence and uniqueness are shown. The boundary value problem is then integrated numerically.
