Boundary element methods for particles and microswimmers in a linear viscoelastic fluid

Abstract:

The consideration of viscoelasticity within fluid dynamical boundary element methods has traditionally required meshing over the whole flow domain. In turn, a major advantage of the boundary element method is lost, namely the need to consider only surface boundary integrals. Here, using a generalised reciprocal relation and viscoelastic force singularities, a boundary element method is developed for linear viscoelastic flows. We proceed to explore finite-deformation microswimming in a linear ...
