Steady-state hydrodynamic instabilities of active liquid crystals: hybrid lattice Boltzmann simulations.
We report hybrid lattice Boltzmann (HLB) simulations of the hydrodynamics of an active nematic liquid crystal sandwiched between confining walls with various anchoring conditions. We confirm theExpand

Topological defects in epithelia govern cell death and extrusion
Epithelial tissues (epithelia) remove excess cells through extrusion, preventing the accumulation of unnecessary or pathological cells. The extrusion process can be triggered by apoptotic signalling,Expand

Transport coefficients of a mesoscopic fluid dynamics model
We investigate the properties of stochastic rotation dynamics, a mesoscopic model used for simulating fluctuating hydrodynamics. Analytical results are given for the shear viscosity and the frictionExpand

Liquid crystal microfluidics for tunable flow shaping.
We explore the flow of a nematic liquid crystal in microfluidic channels with a rectangular cross section through experiments and numerical modeling. The flow profile and the liquid crystalExpand

Modeling contact angle hysteresis on chemically patterned and superhydrophobic surfaces.
We investigate contact angle hysteresis on chemically patterned and superhydrophobic surfaces, as the drop volume is quasistatically increased and decreased. We consider both two (cylindrical drops)Expand

A lattice Boltzmann model of ternary fluid mixtures
A lattice Boltzmann model is introduced which simulates oil-water-surfactant mixtures. The model is based on a Ginzburg-Landau free energy with two scalar order para meters. Diffusive andExpand
