Summary: A class of flows of viscous incompressible fluids with varying viscosity (for example, due to varying the temperature or the presence of polymerization processes) in the field of time-dependent external forces (for example, in the non-inertial coordinate system associated with the streamlined body) is considered. Concrete expressions of these dependences are found at which the set of the Navier-Stokes equations, via change of variables, can be transformed to equations with time-independent coefficients or to a modified set of Navier-Stokes equations. The latter allows one to consider time-dependent analogs of the steady-state solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations.
As an example, the problem of the flow of a layer of fluid with a variable viscosity over the plane under the effect of variable external force is considered. An exact solution of this problem is used to obtain the set of equations describing the flow in a thin liquid layer in a shallow-water approximation. It is shown that, along with the time-dependent uniform solution, a nonuniform time-dependent solution with a periodical system of jumps exists (an analog of the steady-state solution constructed in [the authors, Dokl.
