    Abstract

    A compilation of theoretical results from the literature on the finite flat-plate flow at zero incidence is presented. This includes the Blasius solution, the Triple Deck at the trailing edge, asymptotics in the wake, and properties near the edges of the plate. In addition, new formulas for skin friction at the plate and velocity overshoot at the boundary-layer edge are given. The relevance of the theoretical predictions is shown by a comparison with numerical results calculated with a compressible Navier-Stokes solver at low Mach number and Reynolds numbers between 103 and 105. This comparison gives clear evidence for the quantitative correctness of the significant upstream influence predicted by the trailing-edge Triple Deck theory.
