The interactions between particles and fluid have received a bulk of attention due to a number of their applications in the field of, for example, biotechnology, medicine, and in the study of sedimentation phenomenon, compressibility of droplets of the spray, cooling tower plumes, and diesel engines, etc. In this talk, we present coupled kinetic-fluid equations. The proposed equations consist of Vlasov-Fokker-Planck equation with local alignment forces and the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations. For the equations, we establish the global existence of weak solutions, hydrodynamic limit, and large-time behavior of solutions. We also remark on blow-up of classical solutions in the whole space.
