An analytic expression is obtained for the constant Ccp in the Baldwin-Lomax model by comparing self-similar solutions for velocity in a constant pressure incompressible flow that are based on the Cebeci-Smith and Baldwin-Lomax models; both models are shown to give identical results when the model Ccp has a specific analytical form.
