Effect of pressure gradients on Stokes flows over cavities

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Prior studies of Stokes flow over cavities have been limited to simple shear and simple stagnation point flows. In the present work, it is shown that the presence of a transverse pressure gradient has a dramatic effect on the character of the flow, eliminating the separated flow region in many cases. Consequences of this phenomenon for mass transfer are discussed.
