Incompressible Polymer Fluid Flow Past a Flat Wedge



A problem of an incompressible polymer fluid flow past an infinite flat wedge is considered. The flow moves parallel to the plane of symmetry of the wedge and normal to the wedge rib. It is demonstrated that two surfaces of strong discontinuities are needed for the no-slip condition to be satisfied on the wedge surface. Steady solutions of the problem are studied, and the flow is shown to be asymmetric with respect to the plane of symmetry of the wedge.
