FINGERING IN HELE-SHAW CELLS

Abstract:
A large class of explicit solutions for Hele-Shaw flow with a free surface is presented. The results are valid when surface-tension effects in the plane of the cell are negligible. Most of the solutions given produce fingers, both in channel flow and on a growing air bubble. Possible behavior of these fingers is described, and a qualitative comparison with published experimental results is made.
