N2 - We consider the Navier-Stokes equation in a domain with a rough boundary. The roughness is modeled by a small amplitude and small wavelength oscillation, with typical scale ≪ 1. For periodic oscillation, it is well-known that the best homogenized (that is regular in) boundary condition is of Navier type. Such result still holds for random stationary irregularities, as shown recently by the first author [5, 15]. We study here arbitrary irregularity patterns.
