Abstract

A sphere falling in a viscous Newtonian fluid reaches a steady terminal velocity; the approach to this terminal velocity can be shown to be monotonic, in agreement with observations. In polymeric fluids, a final steady state is also always observed experimentally. This shows that the unusual behavior seen in the flow of wormlike micellar solutions extends to the classic problem of flow past a sphere.
