Steady laminar flows of a newtonian fluid in the vicinity of a spherical ball located inside a spherical cavity are studied. Two methods were employed: a method involving a finite element calculation and an experimental method based on measurements of local velocities by means of laser Doppler anemometry using the Bragg cell. The influences of the Reynolds numbers and of the ball positions in the cavity have been analyzed and compared.
