A solution has been derived for the Navier equations in orthogonal cylindrical curvilinear coordinates in which the axial variable, X3, is suppressed through a Fourier transform. The necessary coordinate transformation may be found either analytically or numerically for given geometries. The finite-difference forms of the mapped Navier equations and boundary conditions are solved in a rectangular region in the curvilinear coordinaties. Numerical results are given for the half space with various surface shapes and boundary conditions in two and three dimensions.
