The error in simulation of viscous flows in domains with sharp corners has been evaluated for a model problem at zero Reynolds number. Methods based on a local analytical solution give reliable results but their applicability is limited. The ad hoc numerical methods give an error that is not negligible and has a nonlocal character in some parts of the flow. © 1995 by Academic Press, Inc.
