Note on similarity solutions for viscous flow over an impermeable and non-linearly (quadratic) stretching sheet
Kelson, Neil A. (2011) Note on similarity solutions for viscous flow over an impermeable and non-linearly (quadratic) stretching sheet. International Journal of Non-Linear Mechanics, 46(8), pp. 1090-1091.
Similarity solutions for flow over an impermeable, non-linearly (quadratic) stretching sheet were studied recently by Raptis and Perdikis (Int. J. Non-linear Mech. 41 (2006) 527–529) using a stream function of the form ψ=αxf(η)+βx2g(η). A fundamental error in their problem formulation is pointed out. On correction, it is shown that similarity solutions do not exist for this choice of ψ
