The layer of fluid wherein the effects of viscosity are significant and which exists in the immediate vicinity of a bounding surface is known as a boundary layer. Boundary layer equations such as Bernoulliâ€™s equation, Prandtlâ€™s transposition theorem, energy integral, Von Mises transformation, and Croccoâ€™s transformation equations are necessary for the understanding of boundary layer flows. They are also a vital point of fluid dynamics. In mathematical analysis of fluid dynamics, one of the central problems is the asymptotic limit of the fluid flow as viscosity becomes zero. This book unravels the recent studies in the field of boundary layer flows. It will also provide interesting topics for research which interested readers can take up. This book is a vital tool for all researching or studying about boundary layer flows as it gives incredible insights into emerging trends and concepts.
