Influence of walls on the migration of non-Brownian spherical particles in creeping flow: a lattice Boltzmann study.


The influence of walls on binary encounters of spherical particles under creeping flow is studied by means of the lattice Boltzmann method. Depending on the initial particle displacement different behaviours can be observed, including the 'swapping' trajectories. The domain of the swapping trajectories is identified for interacting spheres with the same… (More)
