We investigate the behaviour of flow field around an obstacle placed in uniform particle flow based on two-fluid Saffman equation. Particle density in the vicinity of the front stagnation point is, in particular, the primary interest in the present study. In the case of small Stokes number, in which particle impingement does not occur, there exists the exact solution of the flow field of particle phase is obtained. Perturbed solution is also obtained in the reciprocal of Stokes number when Stokes number is large enough. Comparison between numerical results and these solutions shows good agreement and the peak of particle density appears near the threshold of partide impingement to the body surface.
