    Abstract
    We present here an analytical calculation of the hydrodynamic interactions between a smooth spherical particle held fixed in a Poiseuille flow and a rough wall. By the assumption of a low Reynolds number, the flow around a fixed spherical particle is described by the Stokes equations. The surface of the rigid wall has periodic corrugations, with small amplitude compared with the sphere radius. The asymptotic development coupled with the Lorentz reciprocal theorem are used to find the analytical solution of the couple, lift and drag forces exerted on the particle, generated by the second-order flow due to the wall roughness. These hydrodynamic effects are evaluated in terms of amplitude and period of roughness and also in terms of the distance between sphere and wall.

    Abstract
    Based on the assumption of low Reynolds number, the flow around a spherical particle settling towards a corrugated wall in a fluid at rest is described by Stokes equations. In the case of the small amplitude of wall roughness, the asymptotic expansion coupled with the Lorentz reciprocal theorem are used to derive analytical expressions of the hydrodynamic effects due to wall roughness. The evolution of these effects in terms of roughness parameters and also the sphere-wall distance are discussed.
