Abstract

We present the main ideas behind the derivation and some applications of a theorem that parallels Lorentz’s reciprocal theorem and provides general expressions for the force and torque acting on a rigid body of arbitrary shape moving in an inhomogeneous incompressible flow at arbitrary Reynolds number. We show that this theorem allows a clear physical interpretation of the various contributions to the loads and encompasses all results available in both limits of inviscid and creeping flows.
