Abstract

We define a lattice Boltzmann model of solid, deformable suspensions immersed in a fluid itself described in terms of the lattice Boltzmann method. We discuss the rules governing the internal dynamics of the solid object as well as the rules specifying the interaction between solid and fluid particle. We perform a numerical drag experiment to validate the model. Finally we consider the case of a population of flexible chains in suspension in a shear stress flow and study the influence on the velocity profile.
