# Viscous free-surface flows past cylinders

@inproceedings{Hinton2020ViscousFF, title={Viscous free-surface flows past cylinders}, author={Edward M. Hinton and Andrew J. Hogg and Herbert E. Huppert}, year={2020} }

Free-surface flows of viscous liquid down an inclined plane and past cylinders of various cross-sections are investigated theoretically and experimentally. The cylinders are oriented with their axis perpendicular to the plane and are sufficiently tall that they are not overtopped. A lubrication model is applied to derive the steady governing equation for the flow depth, which is integrated numerically and analyzed asymptotically to calculate how the depth of a steady uniform flow is perturbed…
