Abstract: We explore gas flows to the central regions of a disk galaxy induced by small orbiting satellites, of mass ratio 1:100. Preliminary results for prograde and retrograde encounters (circular and parabolic) show that the amount of driven gas is dependent on the profile of the halo and orbit of the perturber.
