Numerical simulation of destabilizing heterogeneous suspensions at vanishing Reynolds numbers

Bülow, Fabian

Abstract:
This work deals with the numerical investigation of destabilizing suspensions, which are governed by two basic processes: Clustering and sedimentation. After laying the foundation to an efficient numerical simulation based on the Stokesian Dynamics method, hydrodynamic clustering and clustering due to non-hydrodynamic interactions are investigated. It is shown that multi-particle simulations need parallelization and an efficient post-processing to yield reliable results within a reasonable time.
