Evaluation of Interfacial Fluid Dynamical Stresses Using the Immersed Boundary Method.

Abstract

The goal of this paper is to examine the evaluation of interfacial stresses using a standard, finite difference based, immersed boundary method (IMBM). This calculation is not trivial for two fundamental reasons. First, the immersed boundary is represented by a localized boundary force which is distributed to the underlying fluid grid by a discretized delta… (More)
