THE STOKES RESISTANCE ON
AN AXISYMMETRIC PARTICLE IN
ASYMMETRIC STREAMING FLOW
K.B. RANGER AND A.M.J. DAVIS

Abstract. The Stokes drag on an axisymmetric solid due to an asymmetric streaming flow is determined uniquely by the use of only two of the no slip boundary conditions. The simplified analysis is demonstrated for the prolate and oblate ellipsoids, from which the limiting cases of the sphere and disk are readily recovered.
