Abstract

Newtonian viscous gravity currents propagating along horizontal and inclined channels with semicircular and V-shaped boundaries are examined. Similarity solutions are obtained from the governing mathematical equations and compared with closely matching data from laboratory experiments in which the propagation of glycerine along different channels was recorded. Geological applications of the results are discussed briefly.
