Previous long-wavelength analyses of capillary breakup of a viscous fluid thread in a perfectly inviscid environment show that the asymptotic self-similar regime immediately prior to breakup is given by a balance between surface tension, inertia, and extensional viscous stresses in the thread. In...
An analysis is presented of the two-dimensional natural convection flow induced under an adiabatic unbounded horizontal surface by an embedded constant strength line heat source that is switched on at a certain initial time. After a sufficiently long time, the flow takes on an asymptotic boundary...
