A numerical method was developed to solve the Falkner-Skan (FS) equation at infinity. The FS equation was integrated within a specific non-dimensional wall distance parameter. The stream function was transformed to result in the FS differential equation for the dependent variable subjected to different boundary conditions. Two possible solutions for FS equations were obtained for permeable/impermeable wall conditions.
