The problem studied was the non-reciprocal cyclic swimming motion of three spheres linked with axially aligned retractable arms in Stokes flow. The arms are assumed to be able to retract at a steady speed to half their length, and then at a later tim...

Oscillatory oseenlets (2011)
Thesis
Elmazuzi, R. Oscillatory oseenlets. (Thesis). University of Salford

Consider uniform flow past an oscillating body. Assume that the resulting far-field flow consists of both steady and time periodic components. The time periodic component can be decomposed into a Fourier expansion series of time harmonic terms. The... Read More about Oscillatory oseenlets.
