Supercritical Flow Past Bodies

  • Daniel D. Joseph
Part of the Applied Mathematical Sciences book series (AMS, volume 84)


We are now going to study the problem of uniform flow past a body; this is the viscoelastic analogue of the exterior problem of aerodynamics. Two typical problems are uniform flow past a body or steady motion of a body in a fluid at rest. These two problems are equivalent because of Galilean invariance.
