Abstract

Sumudu transform is employed to solve the following three problems of Newtonian fluid flow on an infinite plate: (i) Stokes' first problem for suddenly started plate and suddenly stopped plate, (ii) flow on an infinite plate, (iii) Ekman layer problem. Solutions are compared with those of Laplace transform and similarity methods. The results reveal that the method is very effective and simple.
