Slow flow through stationary random beds and suspensions of spheres


Stokes flow through a random, moderately dense bed of spheres is treated by a generalization of Brinkman's (1947) method, which is applicable to both stationary beds and suspensions. For stationary beds, Darcy's law with a permeability result similar to Brinkman's is derived. For suspensions an effective viscosity μ/(1–2·60ψ) is found, where ψ is the volume fraction of spheres. Also, an expression for the settling velocity is derived.
