An analysis is presented for obtaining approximate solutions of the similarity equations for three-dimensional laminar-boundary-layer flows over a flat surface under main-flow streamlines that are translates and representable as infinite series expansions. For the particular case of streamline shapes described by a power of the distance along the surface from the leading edge, relatively simple expressions are obtained for flow deflection at the boundary surface, limiting streamline shape, and shear stress at the surface.
