The laminar-boundary-layer development over a semi-infinite flat plate placed in a flow with concentric circular streamline was investigated with the limitation of small total turning of the main-stream flow. The shape of the velocity profiles in the direction of the mainstream flow and perpendicular to it was analytically determined for an incompressible flow and a compressible flow with Prandtl number equal to 1.
