The effects of change in\r\ndiameter and in velocity are studied in self-similar coordinate system.\r\nThe spatial variations of velocity defect and that of the half-width\r\nhave been investigated. The results are compared with those\r\npublished by H.Schlichting. In the normalized coordinates, it is also observed that all cases except for the first station are self-similar. By attention to self-similarity profiles of mean velocity, it is observed for all the cases at the each station curves tend to zero at a same point.","references":null,"publisher":"World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology","index":"Open Science Index 34, 2009"}
