Document Type: Journal Paper


Flow of two fluids of different density towards line sink located in bottom corner of rectangular configuration with upstream and extending to infinity, was studied by relaxation techniques; relationships between Froude numbers in two layers were determined and critical condition, when lighter fluid begins or ceases to flow, was estimated.
