The incompressible laminar boundary layer over a flat plate is studied for the simple case where the stream lines in the free flow have a parabolic shape. An exact solution of the boundary layer equations is derived. No separation occurs, even when there is a strong adverse pressure gradient along the stream lines, so that in this instance the secondary flow has a favorable influence. Because of the variation of total pressure from one stream line to another in the free stream, the total pressure within the boundary layer at a given point can exceed that of the corresponding free stream.
