Abstract

The simulations of elliptical particles in a pressure driven flow are performed using a lattice Boltzmann (LB) method. Effects of multi-particle interaction on the lateral migration and orientation of both neutrally and non-neutrally buoyant particles are investigated. Low and itermediate solid concentrations in terms of area fraction fa = 13, 25, and 40% are included in these simulations.
