The dispersion of small inertial particles moving in a homogeneous, hypothetically stationary, shear flow is investigated using both theoretical analysis and numerical simulation, under one-way coupling approximation. In the theoretical approach, the previous studies are extended to the case of homogeneous shear flow with a corresponding anisotropic spectrum. As it is impossible to obtain a closed theoretical solution without some drastic simplifications, the motion of dispersed particles is also investigated using kinematic simulation where random Fourier modes are generated according to a prescribed anisotropic spectrum with a superimposed linear mean fluid velocity profile. The combined effects of particle Stokes number and dimensionless drift velocity (magnitude and direction) are investigated by computing the statistics from Lagrangian tracking of a large number of particles in many flow field realizations, and comparison is made between the observed effects in shear flow and in isotropic turbulence.
