Abstract : This report is a continuation of the study of the periodic flows induced by the motion of a flat plate oscillating parallel to a stationary one. The parallel laminar flow theory number has been verified as a similarity parameter by varying the oscillation frequency, the kinematic viscosity, and the plate separation distance. The oscillating plate generates horizontal pressure gradients within the flow so the flow pattern is not that of the classic zero pressure gradient theory. Measurements and displacements predicted by theory presented here show good agreement. (Author)
