We study the motion of a rigid body of arbitrary shape immersed in a viscous incompressible fluid in a bounded, three-dimensional domain. The motion of the rigid body is caused by the action of given forces exerted on the fluid and on the rigid body. For this problem, we prove the global existence of weak solutions.
