An Integral Relationship for Boundary Layer Flow

In this paper, the problem was reduced to that of the construction and solution of two equations governing the variation of these parameters around the surface of the cylinder considered, and the second condition was selected.
AN approximate solution of the boundary layer equations recently completed involved the assumption of a velocity profile through the boundary layerdepending on two parameters. As a result the problem was reduced to that of the construction and solution of two equations governing the variation of these parameters around the surface of the cylinder considered. Earlier solutions, such as Pohlhauscn's, have made use of a single parameter only and have employed Karman's momentum integral for its determination, but the additional, parameter now introduced necessitates the use of a further equation. It is the purpose of the present note to discuss and illustrate the properties of the second condition that was selected.

One hundred years of aeronautics in East London

TL;DR: The centenary of Queen Mary College's involvement in aeronautics is celebrated in this article, with the focus on the early years from 1907 until the 1950s, a period ripe for recording before it recedes beyond living memory, but also the period during which the degree course of aeronautical engineering became firmly established and its parent Department acquired its reputation for research.
