Boundary layers for Oseen’s type equation in space dimension three. (English) Zbl 0912.35125

Summary: We treat linearized Navier-Stokes equations of Oseen’s type with large Reynolds number and study the corresponding boundary layers. We consider the flow in a channel in three-dimensional space, extending the results previously established in [the authors, Indiana Univ. Math. J. 45, 863-916 (1996; Zbl 0881.35097)] for two-dimensional space. The results here are stronger than those in (loc. cit.): We prove results on the strong convergence in \(H^1\) and \(L^\infty\) (uniform) norms and provide a corrector which is divergence-free and matches the boundary value of the inviscid solution.
