Lift at low Reynolds number

  title={Lift at low Reynolds number},
  author={Lionel Bureau and G. Coupier and Thomas J Salez},
Lift forces are widespread in hydrodynamics. These are typically observed for big and fast objects, and are often associated with a combination of fluid inertia ( i.e. large Reynolds numbers) and some specific symmetry-breaking mechanism. In contrast, low-Reynolds-number flows are usually overdamped and do not exhibit such peculiar and interesting features. However, the inclusion of boundary effects qualitatively changes this picture. Indeed, in the context of soft and biological matter, recent… 



Electroviscous drag on squeezing motion in sphere-plane geometry.

Theoretically and experimentally, we study electroviscous phenomena resulting from charge-flow coupling in a nanoscale capillary. Our theoretical approach relies on Poisson-Boltzmann mean-field

Doing so, we noted a series of misprints in the original article by Tabatabaei et al.: (i) dimensionless forces Λ should read Λ = /( ) (and not Λ = /(
