%X The paper deals with a 3-D model for the linear stability of an incompressible boundary layer flow over laminate plates like compliant coatings. The main flow considered is of Blasius type, while the disturbance modes are described by an Orr-Sommerfeld type equation and a Squire equation. These equations arc solved numerically using a shooting technique. The compliant coating proposed is a new one: a laminate compliant plate which is connected to the rigid base by a liquid viscous sublayer. After implementation of the matching conditions between the flow and solid coating, the governing equations are solved numerically for a particular geometrical model. Results are presented for the Tollmien-Schlichting instability regime.
