A new method is described for incorporating close-field, lubrication forces between pairs of particles into the multiparticle Stokes flow calculations. The method is applied to the suspensions of both spherical as well as cylindrical particles, and results computed by the method are shown to be in excellent agreement with the exact known results available in the literature.
