The theory of slow, steady-state viscoelastic flow is applied to axisymmetric motions in which the region of flow is so far from the axis of symmetry that the motion is “almost plane.” Corrections for slight azimuthal curvature are explicitly calculated. The Reiner-Rivlin fluid is discussed as an illustrative special case.
