Self-propelled colloidal swimmers move by pushing the adjacent fluid backwards. The resulting motion of an asymmetric body depends on the profile of pushing velocity over its surface. We describe a method of predicting the motion arising from arbitrary velocity profiles over a given body shape, using a discrete-source "stokeslet" representation. The net velocity and angular velocity is a sum of contributions from each point on the surface. The contributions from a given point depend only on the…

Hydrodynamic couplings of colloidal ellipsoids diffusing in channels

Abstract The hydrodynamic interactions (HIs) of two colloidal spheres characterized by the translation–translation (T–T) couplings have been studied under various confinements, but little is known



Low Reynolds number hydrodynamics: with special applications to particulate media

One studying the motion of fluids relative to particulate systems is soon impressed by the dichotomy which exists between books covering theoretical and practical aspects. Classical hydrodynamics is
