Simulating the Motion of Flexible Pulp Fibres Using the ImmersedBoundary Method

  title={Simulating the Motion of Flexible Pulp Fibres Using the ImmersedBoundary Method},
  author={John M. Stockie and Sheldon I. Greeny},
The motion of exible bres suspended in an incompressible uid is of interest to researchers in a wide variety of elds, including reinforced composite materials, biotechnology and the pulp and paper industry. In this work, we concentrate on the application to pulp bres and demonstrate how the complex hydrodynamic interaction between a exible bre and the surrounding uid can be simulated using the immersed boundary method. The computations involve a single bre suspended in a two{dimensional shear… CONTINUE READING
