Abstract : The incompressible viscous flow along a right-angle corner is considered. The effect of the three-dimensional geometry on the second-order 'boundary layer' flow away from the corner is determined and an interesting secondary flow is deduced. It is observed that this cross-flow prescribes the necessary asymptotic boundary conditions for the equations governing the flow inside the 'corner layer'. A systematic matching scheme is specified and the corner flow problem is reformulated in terms of the 'corner layer - boundary layer' matching conditions. (Author)
