Abstract: We employ a homotopy method, rather than conventional stability theory, in order to resolve the degeneracy due to resonance, which exists in fluid motion associated with a channel of infinite extent in ventilated double glazing. The introduction of a symmetry breaking perturbation, in the form of a Poiseuille flow component, alters substantially the resonant bifurcation tree of the original flow. Previously unknown resonant higher order nonlinear solutions, i.e. after the removal of the perturbative Poiseuille flow component, are discovered. A possible extension of the methodology to consider non-Newtonian gradient enhanced incompressible viscous fluids is also briefly discussed.
