A system of two integral equations is presented to describe the system of 3D axisymmetric inviscid stagnation flows related to Navier-Stokes equations and existence of its solutions is studied. Utilizing it, we construct analytically the similarity solutions of the 3D system. A nonexistence result is obtained. Previous study was only supported by numerical results.
