An analysis is performed to study the effects of nonuniform multiple slot injection (suction) and nonuniform wall enthalpy on the steady nonsimilar compressible laminar boundary-layer flow over a two-dimensional and axisymmetric bodies. Nonsimilar solution is obtained from the origin of the streamwise coordinate to the exact point of separation. The difficulties arising out at the starting point of the streamwise coordinate, at the edges of the slots and at the point of separation are overcome by applying the method of quasilinear implicit finite difference scheme with an appropriate selection of finer step sizes along the streamwise direction. It is found that the nonuniform multiple slot injection moves the point of separation downstream but the nonuniform multiple slot suction has the reverse effect. Also, separation can be delayed more effectively by applying nonuniform multiple slot injection as compared to the nonuniform single slot injection. The nonuniform total enthalpy at the wall (i.e., the cooling or heating of the wall in the slots) along the streamwise coordinate has very little effect on the skin friction and thus on the point of separation.
