We now discuss hydrodynamic interactions between two particles in Stokes flow, which generally scale as the inverse of the distance between their centers. First, we consider a particle interacting with a wall, and subsequently we will present results for particle-particle interactions.

An analytical solution for drag force on a sphere moving perpendicular to a    plane    wall    was    obtained    by    (Goldman    et    al.,    1967)    in    the    form    of

an infinite series solution. Using regression techniques, (Bevan and Prieve, 2000) developed the following rational function approximation:


f (h)

6npV a


6(h/a)2 + 2 (h/a)

6 (h/a)2 + 9 (h/a) + 2’

where a is the particle radius, h is the particle-surface separation distance, and V is the    particle    velocity.    In    the    asymptotic    limits    the    above    relation


lim fe(h) ^ 1,    lim fe(h) ^ h/a.

h——ж    h——0

An analytical solution for drag force on a sphere moving parallel to a plane wall was obtained in (O’Neill and Majumdar, 1970). A rational function approximation for this solution is given by



6npV a


368 (h/a)3 + 559 (h/a)2 + 81 (h/a) 368(h/a)3+ 779(h/a)2+ 250(h/a)’

In the asymptotic limits the above relation gives

lim fe(h) ^ 1,    lim fe(h) ^ 0.324.

h——ж    h——0

Hydrodynamic interaction of a particle near a flat surface also affects its diffusion characteristics. The particle diffusion in the translational direction
