The uniform flow is representative of very high Reynolds number (though without the boundary layers). Couette flow is the (laminar) flow that results when the upper wall is moving at velocity U and the bottom wall is stationary. Poiseuille flow is the (laminar) flow that results when a pressure drop is applied from end-to-end....
