Justification of Asymptotic Two-dimensional Model for Steady Navier-Stokes Equations for Incompressible Flow

  • Rostislav VodákEmail author


We study the asymptotic behavior of solutions to steady Navier-Stokes equations for incompressible flow in thin three-dimensional deformed cylinders. We prove that a sequence of the solutions converges strongly to a solution of a corresponding two-dimensional asymptotic model if the thickness of the cylinders converges to zero.
