Axisymmetric Creeping Flow of a Micropolar Fluid over a Sphere Coated with a Thin Fluid Film

Abstract

Consideration is given to the problem of steady axisymmetric Stokes flow of a micropolar fluid past a sphere coated with a thin, immiscible Newtonian fluid layer. Inertial effects are neglected for both the outer fluid and the fluid film. The stream function solutions of the governing equations are obtained in terms of modified Bessel functions and… (More)
