A fundamental improvement of any one-parameter integral procedure for compressible laminar boundary-layer analysis is described. It is shown, by means of comparisons with exact solutions covering cases of favorable, zero, and adverse pressure gradients, and of constant and variable surface temperatures with and without heat transfer, that in all cases very significant improvements in the calculated results are attained, and also that this improvement is accomplished simply by evaluating integrals.
