This lesson covers the integral method, also known as the approximate method, used to solve the flow over a flat plate. The integral method is used when exact solutions are difficult to obtain due to complex, implicit, or numerical integration situations. The lesson explains the three-step process of using the integral method: writing down the governing equations, assuming the velocity profile, and finding the unknown parameter. The lesson also discusses the advantages of the integral method, such as its simplicity and ability to deal with complicating factors. For instance, the integral method is extensively used in fluid flow, heat transfer, and Massachusetts transfer. The lesson concludes with the application of the integral method to derive the momentum integral equation and find the boundary layer thickness and skin friction coefficient.
