An analysis is presented for the laminar radial flow of an incompressible fluid between two closely spaced parallel plates. A solution is obtained by perturbing the creeping-flow solution and an expansion is carried out in terms of the downstream coordinate. The solution is found to agree well with experimental measurements except near the channel entrance.
