In this paper, we present the idea of nonclassical similarity transformation, which takes into account the effect of the parameter λ on the boundary layer thickness, where λ is the ratio of wall velocity to the free stream velocity. The transformation is applied to the fluid flow over a moving flat plate (Blasius profiles).
