Abstract:

Several generalizations of theorems of the types originally stated by Helmholtz concerning the dissipation of energy in slow viscous flow have been given recently by Keller, Rubenfeld and Molyneux. These generalizations included cases in which the fluid contains one or more solid bodies and drops of another liquid assuming the drops do not change shape. Some further extensions are given which allow for drops which may be deformed by the flow and include the effect of surface tension. The admissible boundary conditions have also been extended and particular theorems applicable to infinite domains, spatially periodic flows and to flows in infinite cylindrical pipes are derived. Uniqueness theorems are also proved. Author
