Low Reynolds Number Flows

Synopsis
Demonstrates phenomena of ‘inertia-free’ flows in which viscous forces dominate in the balance of forces. Topics include: relative importance of inertial and viscous forces as Reynolds number is varied, Poseuille flow, hyrodynamic lubrication, kinematic reversibility of low-Reynolds number flows, drag laws of falling spheres and cylinders at different orientations, influence of nearby walls and other falling bodies on resistance, sedimentation, propulsion of microscopic organisms and Hele-Shawflow.
