Try to solve these problems before watching the solutions in the screencasts.
Example Problem 1
Consider steady-state, one dimensional flow over a single stationary vertical plate exposed to atmospheric conditions. What is the velocity profile, u(x), for this type of flow?
Example Problem 2
Consider steady-state, one dimensional flow through two horizontal infinite parallel plates. The top plate is moving at a velocity, U, while the bottom plate is stationary. What is the velocity profile, u(y), for this type of flow known as Couette flow?
