In experimental boundary layer studies, a flat plate with some shaped nose piece is generally used; this is often prone to flow separation at the junction. By analysing the development of a laminar boundary layer on a two-parameter family of nose shapes, it is found that a cubic super-ellipse of axis ratio 6 or higher is a reasonable optimum shape for avoiding separation on or due to such nose-pieces.
