Matt Turner’s paper on stagnation-point flows accepted to Euro J. Mechanics/B

turner-weidmanThe paper “Stagnation-point flows with stretching surfaces: A unified formulation and new results“, co-authored by Matt Turner and Patrick Weidman (University of Colorado, Boulder) has been accepted for publication in European Journal of Mechanics/B Fluids. The paper investigates the stability of stagnation point flows coupled to stretching surfaces below the flow. The theory presents a universal derivation which contains many problems which have been successfully looked at in the past, and 3 new problems, including a transverse stretching plate to a 2D stagnation point flow, and unilateral stretching under Homann stagnation point flow. The stability of these new flows are examined using linear stability analysis. This research was funded by a London Mathematical Society working in pairs travel grant.
