Preface One of the most influential works in Fluid Dynamics at the edge of the 19-th century was a short paper [130] written by Henry Selby Hele-Shaw (1854–1941). There Hele-Shaw first described his famous cell that became a subject of deep investigation only more than 50 years later. A Hele-Shaw cell is a device for investigating two-dimensional flow of a viscous fluid in a narrow gap between two parallel plates. This cell is the simplest system in which multi-dimensional convection is present… CONTINUE READING
