Assuming a polynomial of the fourth degree to describe the
velocity function, the momentum integral equation for a
second-order fluid is used to develop differential equations
describing the boundary-layer for second-order flow past external
surfaces. Using the momentum integral equation and appropriate
boundary conditions, results are tabulated for both plane and
axisymmetric stagnation flows. The effect of the second-order
viscosity terms on the boundary-layer parameters for problems
of flow past a circular cylinder and flow past a sphere is
discussed. An interesting result is found in the case of flow
past a sphere; for certain values of the second-order viscosity
terms, there is a reduction in the viscous drag from that of
