A theoretical analysis of liquid-liquid counter-current flow in laminar boundary layers with a flat interphase based on the similarity-variables method has been made. The numerical results for the velocity distribution in both phases are obtained. The dissipation energy in a boundary layer is found and the results corresponding to counter-current and co-current flows are compared. The comparison shows significant differences in the dissipation energy values in the cases of co-current and counter-current flows.
