Abstract
An analysis is performed to obtain the non-similar solution of a steady incompressible laminar boundary layer flow for an exponentially decreasing free stream velocity with non-uniform multiple slot injection (suction). The difficulties in obtaining the non-similar solutions at the starting point of the stream-wise coordinate, at the edges of the slot and at the point of separation are overcome by applying an implicit finite difference scheme in combination with the quasi-linearization technique and an appropriate selection of the finer step sizes along the stream-wise direction. Results are presented for ε{lunate} = 0.001 and for different values of mass transfer parameter, - 0.075 ≤ A ≤ 1.0. It is observed that the separation can be delayed by non-uniform multiple slot suction and also by moving the slots downstream but the effect of non-uniform multiple slot injection is just reverse. © 2007 Elsevier Ltd.
