Measurements have been made of the mean flow in a two-dimensional, constant-width, ninety-degree miter bend and compared with predictions of available free-streamline theories. Agreement is quite favorable, especially with a model incorporating separation ahead of the concave corner. Reynolds number effects observed in real flows are argued to be associated with changes in the location of the outer-wall separation point. Requirements for relevancy of free-streamline models of internal flows separating at a salient edge are suggested and confirmed for cases examined.
