Examples: Flows in various converging and diverging channels, free-surface flows, and lubrication theory. 6.6 Rayleigh's problem of the transient motion induced by a flat plate that moves in its own plane: an archetypal example of laminar viscous flow with significant inertial effects. The viscous diffusion time and its implications in various types of flows, including boundary layers in steady laminar flow.
