Exact, self-similar, time-dependent free surface flows under gravity

  • P. L. Sachdev (a1)

A class of exact, self-similar, time-dependent solutions describing free surface flows under gravity is found which extends the self-propagating class of solutions discovered earlier by Freeman (1972) to those which decay with time.
