Abstract

The existence of a generalized weak solution is proved for the nonstationary problem of motion of a rigid body in the flow of a viscous incompressible fluid filling a cylindrical pipe of arbitrary cross-section. The fluid flow conforms to the Navier–Stokes equations and tends to the Poiseuille flow at infinity. The body moves in accordance with the laws of classical mechanics under the influence of the surrounding fluid and the gravity force directed along the cylinder. Collisions of the body with the boundary of the flow domain are not admitted and, by this reason, the problem is considered until the body approaches the boundary.
