We solve the problem of plane flow of a second-order fluid over a rectangular slot when inertia is neglected by matching biorthogonal eigenfunction expansions in different regions of flow. The method appears to be cheaper and more accurate than direct numerical methods. The effect of normal stresses on pressure measurements at the bottom of the slot is discussed.
