New fundamental solutions for micropolar fluids are derived in explicit form for two- and three-dimensional steady unbounded Stokes and Oseen flows due to a point force and a point couple, including the two-dimensional micropolar Stokeslet, the two- and three-dimensional micropolar Stokes couplet, the three-dimensional micropolar Oseenlet, and the three-dimensional micropolar Oseen couplet. These fundamental solutions do not exist in Newtonian flow due to the absence of microrotation velocity… 
A general formula for the drag on a sphere placed in a creeping unsteady micropolar fluid flow
In the present work, we investigate the creeping unsteady motion of an infinite micropolar fluid flow past a fixed sphere. The technique of Laplace transform is used. The drag formula is obtained in
Isothermal Flows of Micropolar Liquids: Formulation of Problems and Analytical Solutions
Models for flows of a non-Newtonian liquid have been considered within the framework of the micropolar theory. Different forms of constitutive equations and boundary conditions have been compared.
On the fundamental solutions for micropolar fluid-fluid mixtures under steady state vibrations
In this paper, a non-isothermal flow of a micropolar fluid in a thin pipe with circular cross-section is considered. The fluid in the pipe is cooled by the exterior medium and the heat exchange on
Unsteady mixed convection boundary layer flow past a sphere in a micropolar fluid
The unsteady mixed convection flow over a sphere in a micropolar fluid is studied. The unsteadiness is due to an impulsive motion of the free stream. The governing boundary layer equations are first
Axi-symmetric translational motion of an arbitrary solid prolate body in a micropolar fluid
The translational motion of an arbitrary body of revolution in a micropolar fluid is investigated by a combined analytical–numerical method. The governing equations are obtained under the assumption

In this dissertation we investigate free convective heat and mass transfer in micropolar fluid flow past a moving semi-infinite vertical porous plate in the presence of a magnetic field. The aim of
Boundary layer flow and heat transfer of a micropolar fluid near the stagnation point on a stretching vertical surface with prescribed skin friction
The steady laminar mixed convection boundary layer flow and heat transfer of a micropolar fluid near the stagnation point on a stretched vertical surface with prescribed skin friction were
Spectral Dierence Solution of Two-dimensional Unsteady Compressible Micropolar Equations on Moving and Deformable Grids
The Micropolar uid theory augments the laws of classical continuum mechanics by incorporating the rotational e ects of uid molecules on the continuum. The theory of Micropolar uids has shown promise

The hydrodynamic forces acting on a sphere and on a circular cylinder translating in an unsteady rotating flow field at low Reynolds numbers are calculated using the generalized fundamental solutions.
Drag on an axially symmetric body in the Stokes’ flow of micropolar fluid
The Stokes’ flow problem is considered for micropolar fluids in which the obstacle has an axis of symmetry, and the flow at distant points is uniform and parallel to this axis. A general expression
