Abstract

In this paper, a boundary element formulation is proposed to solve for flow past solid bodies, incorporating the effects of inertia. This will be ac- complished by the use of the Oseen representation formulae. It will also be proved that the Oseen formulation can be represented in the form of a Stokes formulation with the addition of some correcting terms, thus making the problem simpler to handle. The results at this stage are shown. 1 Introduction The low Reynolds number flow past isolated particles of various shapes such as rigid spheres, spheroids, and cylinders have been studied quite extensively by a number of researchers with a wide variety of analytical and numerical methods being used to cover a broad range of both geom
