A numerical analysis of low-velocity two-dimensional transient fluid flow problems is presented. The method is similar in concept to the one-dimensional method of characteristics, but does not follow the traditional characteristics theory for two spatial dimensions. Distinct paths are defined in the three-dimensional space-time domain along which compatibility equations are integrated. The explicit procedure is explained, and validated by comparisons with analytical solutions.
