  author={Fan Kiat Chan and Yashraj Bhosale and Tejaswin Parthasarathy and Mattia Gazzola},
Recent studies on viscous streaming flows in two dimensions have elucidated the impact of body curvature variations on resulting flow topology and dynamics, with opportunities for microfluidic applications. Following that, we present here a three-dimensional characterization of streaming flows as function of changes in body geometry and topology, starting from the well-known case of a sphere to progressively arrive at toroidal shapes. We leverage direct numerical simulations and dynamical… Expand

Steady Streaming Induced by an Oscillating Flat Plate in a Viscous Fluid
An analysis is made of steady streaming induced by oscillating a semi-infinite flat plate in a viscous fluid, parallel to its length. An asymptotic solution of the Navier-Stokes equations isExpand

Propulsion of a Two-Sphere Swimmer.
It is found that the swimming speed obtained from both experiment and simulation agree and collapse onto a single curve if plotted as a function of the streaming Reynolds number, suggesting that the propulsion of a neutrally buoyant swimmer is related to streaming flows. Expand
