Vicinity of the central point: symmetric case

8
Symmetry relative to x, y gives

9
Symmetry relative to x, y defines the most general asymptotic form of velocities: … and stresses:

Conclusions

27
Both some features reported before and new details were observed in simulation of counter flows within cross-slots (acceleration phase). Among the new ones: the pressure and stresses singularities both at the stagnation point and at the walls corner, flow reversal with vortex-like structures. The flow reverse is shown to result from the wave nature of a viscoelastic fluid flow.
