Abstract 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 functions 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…
