Earlier numerical work on viscous flow in the inlet region of a straight channel indicated some curious features in the velocity profiles. These are noiv investigated further to establish that they are not merely a numerical effect and that, moreover, they persist, even if the initial conditions are modified so as to remove the singularity at the inlet. The method used is to consider a physically similar problem of Stokes flow in a quarterplane which can be solved analytically.
