    Sedimentation of particles in Stokes flow

    Résumé : We consider the sedimentation of N identical spherical particles in a uniform gravitational field. Particle rotation is included in the model while fluid and particle inertia is neglected.
    In the dilute case, the result in [5] shows that the particles do not get closer in finite time. The rigorous convergence of the dynamics to the solution of a Vlasov-Stokes equation is proven in [4] in a certain averaged sense. The result holds true in the case of particles that are not so dilute as in [5] and for which the interactions between particles are still important.
    In this paper, using the method of reflections, we extend the investigation of [4] by dis- cussing the optimal particle distance which is conserved in finite time. The set of particle configurations considered herein is the one introduced in [3] for the analysis of the homogenization of the Stokes equation. We also prove that the particles interact with a singular interaction force given by the Oseen tensor and justify the mean field approximation of Vlasov-Stokes equations in the spirit of [1] and [2].
