(Reprint from Bull. of the Research Council of Israel 8C:89-92, Oct 60) The cross stresses effect discovered by Reiner in the laminar flow of air at atmospheric pressure was investigated at 2/3 and 1/3 ambient air pressure. It was found that the effect decreases with decreasing ambient pressure. At higher rates of flow an instability sets in and a Taylor-Saffman effect (J. Aeronaut. Sci. 24:553, 1957) is developed which increases with decreasing ambient pressure. (Author)
