Effect of pressure gradients on Stokes flows over cavities

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


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.
