    Abstract

    Flow in a cubical parallelepiped generated by the motion of one of its walls has been carried out for three values of Reynolds number 100, 400 and 1000.There has been very good agreement between our results and other computations done by a different method. Flow was found to reach an asymptotic steady state and retain symmetry about the mid Z-plane. Flow is characterised by a primary vortex two secondary vorticies and complex three dimensional separation and reattachment and differs qualitiatively from the two dimensional flow. The pressure on the top moving plate is very samll expect it has a high value near the top downstream conrner. Its variation in the bulk of the fluid is very small specially in the Z-direction.
