We study the steady incompressible flow of a Bingham fluid in a thin T-like shaped domain, under the action of given external forces and with no-slip boundary condition on the whole boundary of the domain. This phenomenon is described by non linear variational inequalities. By letting the parameter describing the thickness of the thin domain tend to zero, we derive two uncoupled problems corresponding to the two branches of the T-like shaped structure.

Abstract

We study the steady incompressible flow of a Bingham fluid in a thin T-like shaped domain, under the action of given external forces and with no-slip boundary condition on the whole boundary of the domain. This phenomenon is described by non linear variational inequalities. By letting the parameter describing the thickness of the thin domain tend to zero, we derive two uncoupled problems corresponding to the two branches of the T-like shaped structure. We then analyze and give a physical justification of the limit problem.
