This work detects and visualizes a flow in the spanwise direction in the three-dimensional, laminar, backward-facing step that is responsible for the early onset of unsteadiness for this flow. The wall effects are studied in the whole range of laminar flow regime that show the impact of the lateral wall in the distortion of the flow and how this distortion decays as the flow approaches the plane of symmetry.
