The non-linear evolution of a planar perturbation in a three dimensional expanding Universe is considered. A general Lagrangian scheme (Q model) is introduced and numerical investigations are performed. The asymptotic contraction of the core of the agglomeration is studied. A power-law scaling is detected and an heuristic interpretation of the numerical findings is provided. An asymptotic equation for the multi-stream velocity flow is derived and it is shown to agree quantitatively with the dynamics of the Q model. The relation to the adhesion model is discussed.
Key words: cosmology: theory / large-scale structure of Universe
