Flow around fishlike shapes studied using multiparticle collision dynamics.

Abstract

Empirical measurements of hydrodynamics of swimming fish are very difficult. Therefore, modeling studies may be of great benefit. Here, we investigate the suitability for such a study of a recently developed mesoscale method, namely, multiparticle collision dynamics. As a first step, we confine ourselves to investigations at intermediate Reynolds numbers of… (More)
