Flow past a wedge is governed by the Falkner-Skan equation. This equation admits only numerical solution, which requires the application of the shooting technique. The program plots the velocity for various wedge angles. The result obtained is in agreement with figure 8-10 in page 352 of Deen's book (Analysis of Transport Phenomena, William M. Deen, OUP, 1998). The well-known Blasius equation appears as a particular case in this study. It represents the flow past a flat plate (parameter beta=0). Planar stagnation flow is also treated by the notebook (parameter beta=1).
Also visit this link for similar treatment using Mathematica:
I found this code very useful and efficient to solve Blasuis equation. I compared the results of this code with another script (self made) and I got closed results with very minor errors. My code based in ''Spectral Techniques''.
I appreciate what Dr. Housam did and hope to see many other useful works from him.
I have to say, thanks Dr. Housam for what you did.

Thanks for your costructing this site.
if you solve Exact solution for flow over a flat plate (Blasius equation)and similarity solution to low speed energy equation it will be better.

Matlab is such a high level language that you dont HAVE to have comments, especially if you are familiar with the problem. I found this to be very useful for working through problems in heat transfer
