Viscous flow in slots
Abstract
The incompressible laminar flow past a flat plate moving at a small distance parallel to the ground is investigated theoretically. The flow field is calculated by numerical integration of the vorticity transport equation and the Poisson equation for the streamfunction. Computed pressure and shear stress distribution along the ground and on the plate surface are given for low Reynolds numbers and several distances between the lower surface of the plate and the ground.
