Abstract:

The influence of inertia terms in the equations of motion on the properties of the base flow and near wake flow at very low Reynolds numbers was investigated by using Oseens approximation and by comparing with previous results obtained by the same authors for Stokes flow. The general solutions of Oseens equations of motion were derived for two-dimensional and axisymmetric flows in the half-space x0, for an arbitrarily given velocity field in the plane x0. Numerical examples were given for two-dimensional flow and compared with Stokes flow examples. Author
