The aim of this paper is to extend the approximate deconvolution model for large-eddy simulations to the lattice Boltzmann method. This approach allows to directly act on the velocity distribution function and is based on the intrinsic nonlinearities of the lattice Boltzmann methods. It is not a...
Cells swimming in viscous fluids create flow fields which influence the transport of relevant nutrients, and therefore their feeding rate. We propose a modeling approach to the problem of optimal feeding at zero Reynolds number. We consider a simplified spherical swimmer deforming its shape...
Motivated by results from recent particle tracking experiments in turbulence Xu (Nature Phys. 7 , 709 (2011)), we study the Lagrangian time correlations of vorticity alignments with the three eigenvectors of the deformation-rate tensor. We use data from direct numerical simulations (DNS), and...
We calculate velocity and temperature fields for Rayleigh-Benard convection in a chamber with a warm raft that floats along the top surface for Rayleigh number up to Ra = 20 000. Two-dimensional, infinite Prandtl number, Boussinesq approximation equations are numerically advanced in time from a...
Experimental investigations of the dynamics of a deformable bubble rising in a uniform turbulent flow are reported. The turbulence is characterized by fast particle image velocimetry. Time-resolved evolutions of bubble translation, rotation, and deformation are determined by three-dimensional...
A perturbation method is proposed and used to model the two-dimensional equations governing evaporation in the micro-region of a meniscus on a heated substrate. The novelty of the method lies in the choice of the physical quantities which are used to describe the hydrodynamic and heat transfer...
The quantum-kinetic, or Q-K, model is based on the quantum vibration model that is employed in the computation of gas flows at the molecular level by the direct simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) method. The Q-K procedure for dissociation is physically realistic within the context of the vibration...
Through a combined computational–experimental study of flow in a slowly rotating quasi-two-dimensional container, we show several new aspects related to the kinematics of granular mixing. In the Lagrangian frame, for small numbers of revolutions, the mixing pattern is captured by a model termed...
Longitudinal and transverse electrohydrodynamic flows through a plane channel, of which the walls are micropatterned with a periodic array of stripes, are considered. One unit of wall pattern consists of a slipping stripe and a non-slipping stripe, each with a distinct zeta potential. The...
