Keywords:
rigid body; compressible fluid; incompressible fluid; global existence
Summary:
We consider the problem of motion of several rigid bodies in a viscous fluid. Both compressible and incompressible fluids are studied. In both cases, the existence of globally defined weak solutions is established regardless possible collisions of two or more rigid objects.
