This code solves the similarity equations for a flow laminar flow over a flat plate (Blasius solution) using the finite difference method. The control variables we use here are eta (the discretization spacing) and alpha (the slope of the second derivative of velocity profile). The derivation of the discretization is given in detail in the reference book: 'Convective Heat Transfer' by Adrian Bejan.
