Stokes problems for moving half-planes. (English) Zbl 0843.76015

New exact solutions of Navier-Stokes equations describing the impulsive and oscillatory driven flows in a half-space or in a channel are presented. These solutions have a two-dimensional structure in the region near to the contact between the half-infinite plates. The exact fundamental solutions are also obtained for the flow in a half-space driven by the tangential edgewise motion of half-infinite plate. These solutions are then used to find the solutions for the channel flows which can be obtained by adding an infinite series solution derived from a reflection procedure, by using the fact that the non-slip boundary condition is satisfied on the top wall.
