Abstract : The treatment of the problem of flow of an Oseenlike fluid past a paraboloid of revolution in threedimensions follows closely the treatment of the corresponding problem for a parabolic cylinder in twodimensions. The use of the concept of field modes reduces the problem to elementary considerations with no mathematical difficulties. Expressions for the components of fluid velocity at an arbitrary point in a meridian plane are obtained in closed form. The corresponding Stokes stream function is also obtained in closed form  the chief difference between this stream function and that for the parabolic cylinder being the replacement of the error function by the exponential integral. Expressions are derived for the shearing stress and the drag force and compared with the corresponding expressions for the parabolic cylinder. (Author)
