# Stokes Flow Due to Fundamental Singularities Before a Plane Boundary

• Publish Date: 2004-07-15
• A representation for the velocity and pressure fields in three dimensional Stokes flow was presented in terms of a biharmonic function A and a harmonic function B.This representation was used to establish a general theorem for the calculation of Stokes flow due to fundamental singularities in a region bounded by a stationary no-slip plane boundary.Collins's theorem for axisymmetric Stokes flow before a rigid plane follows as a special case of the the orem.A few illustrative examples are given to show its usefulness.
