A regularised slender-body theory of non-uniform filaments

Abstract:

Resolving the detailed hydrodynamics of a slender body immersed in highly-viscous Newtonian fluid has been the subject of extensive research, applicable to a broad range of biological and physical scenarios. In this work, we expand upon classical theories developed over the past fifty years, deriving an algebraically-accurate slenderbody theory that may be applied to a wide variety of body shapes, ranging from biologically-inspired tapering flagella to highly-oscillatory body geometries with ...
