Exact Solution for Unsteady Flow of Viscous Incompressible Fluid Over a Suddenly Accelerated Flat Plate (Stokes' First Problem) Using Laplace Transforms
With the Navier-Stokes Equation in Cartesian form (in absence of body forces), Laplace Transforms provides a simple approach towards solving the unsteady flow of a viscous incompressible fluid over a suddenly accelerated flat plate. On comparing the results between Laplace Transforms and similarity methods, it reveals that Laplace Transforms is simple and effective.
