Abstract

A modification to the O(Re)-accurate expression for the hydrodynamic force acting on a body in arbitrary time-dependent motion, determined by Lovalenti & Brady (1993), is presented. This simple modification captures the O(Re^2) transient behaviour of the force, which has been recently shown to dominate at large time (Lawrence & Mei 1995), while maintaining the overall O(Re) accuracy.
