The boundary layer equations based on an eddy viscosity concept are solved numerically in the Crocco coordinate plane. A multilevel linear difference scheme is employed. Four different viscosity models are examined and the resulting solutions are compared. The empirical constants in the viscosity models are evaluated by comparing the calculated velocity profiles with experimental data in the similarity region.
