Abstract

We consider the problem of a body moving within an incompressible fluid at constant speed parallel to a wall in an otherwise unbounded domain. This situation is modeled by the incompressible Navier–Stokes equations in a planar exterior domain in a half space with appropriate boundary conditions on the wall, the body, and at infinity. We focus on the case where the size of the body is small. We prove in a very general setup that the solution of this problem is unique and we compute a sharp decay rate of the solution far from the moving body and the wall.
