This paper extends an earlier work [Gürcan et al., Proc. Instn. Mech. Engrs, Part C: J. Mech. Eng. Sci., 2003, 217, 353] on the development of eddies in rectangular cavities driven by two moving lids. The streamfunction describing Stokes flow in such cavities is expressed as a series of Papkovich-Faddle eigenfunctions. The focus here is deep cavities, i.e. those with large height-to-width aspect ratios, where multiple eddies arise. The aspect ratio of the fully developed eddies is found… CONTINUE READING
