    Samenvatting

    This paper presents a class of backward free-convective boundary-layer similarity solutions. It is shown that these boundary layers can be produced along slender downward-projecting slabs of prescribed thickness variation, which are infinitely long. It is pointed out that these solutions can be used to describe free convective flows along vertical fins which have received attention in the literature before. An important result is that the temperature along a downward-projecting fin of constant thickness varies in proportion to the inverse of the seventh power of the shifted longitudinal coordinate.
