© 2001,2010 F. A. Kulacki 3332-01F-7 y x F Assume the fluid is motionless at t < 0. At t = 0, the force F = (F x ,0,0) is applied. Let us trace the motion of the upper plate and the velocity distribution in the fluid. y x,u F t < 0, V = 0 y x F t ~ 0 + , V > 0 © 2001,2010 F. A. Kulacki 3332-01F-8 y x F t >> 0, V > 0 As time increase well beyond zero, the effect of the moving boundary is felt down to the rigid surface. The velocity distribution is nonlinear.
