In modeling many biological systems, it is important to take into account flexible structures which interact with a fluid. At the length scale of cells and cell organelles, thermal fluctuations of the aqueous environment become significant. In this work, it is shown how the immersed boundary method of C.S. Peskin, The immersed boundary method, Acta Num. 11 (2002) 1-39.] for modeling flexible structures immersed in a fluid can be extended to include thermal fluctuations. A stochastic numerical…

Fluid-particle dynamics for passive tracers advected by a thermally fluctuating viscoelastic medium
TLDR
This work proposes a viscoelastic generalization of the LandauLifschitz NavierStokes fluid model, and investigates the properties of particles that are passively advected by such a medium, exploiting certain exact formulations that arise from the Gaussian nature of the fluid model and introducing analysis of memory in the fluid statistics.
