It was shown experimentally that low Reynolds number flows around a sharp corner do not separate at the corner, and separation points move downstream from the corner with decrease in Reynolds number. For the flow in a channel with a backward-facing step, the experimental results showed a good agreement with those of numerical calculation for the position of separation points and the length of standing vortices.
