Abstract : Solutions for the viscous incompressible flow along a right-angle corner were found by a method of successive iteration. The algebraic nature of the asymptotic flow field has been utilized to provide boundary conditions for the numerical analysis. One arbitrary constant appearing in the asymptotic series has been determined by the elimination of interior mass sources that appear as a result of any inaccuracy in the value of this constant, allowing additional mass to cross the outer boundary. The numerical solution shows a swirling flow in the corner but a closed vortical pattern is not established. (Author)
