Stokes paradox for power-law flow around a cylinder. (English) Zbl 0794.76005
Summary: A simple analysis for power-law fluids shows that the Stokes paradox for creeping flow around a cylinder is removed for shear-thinning \((n<1)\) but not for shear-thickening \((n>1)\) fluids. An approximate drag value is found for \(n<1\) and is compared with computed results.
