We propose an optimization method to simulate the motion of long flexible fibers in shear flow. The fiber is modeled as spheres connected by massless rigid rods and ball-socket joints.   A numerical model for the behavior of flexible fibers under inertial flows was developed by coupling discrete element method and finite volume method. The fibers were discretized into several beam segments, and the equations of motion were integrated with a 2nd order accurate explicit by: In fluid mechanics, the term shear flow (or shearing flow) refers to a type of fluid flow which is caused by forces, rather than to the forces a shearing flow, adjacent layers of fluid move parallel to each other with different speeds. Viscous fluids resist this shearing motion. For a Newtonian fluid, the stress exerted by the fluid in resistance to the shear is proportional to.

The numerical results show that an unconstrained flexible body would turn over forward along the airflow’s diffusion direction, while a constrained flexible body in the flow field will make a periodic rotation motion along the axis of the flexible body, and the bending deformation is more obvious than that of unconstrained flexible : Peifeng Lin, Wenqian Xu, Yuzhen Jin, Zefei Zhu. A discrete element method (DEM) model is developed to simulate the dynamics of wet, flexible fibers. The angles of repose of dry and wet fibers are simulated, and the simulation results are in good agreement with experimental results, validating the wet, flexible fiber model.

The dynamical system governing the motion of a curved rigid two-dimensional circular-arc fiber in simple shear is derived in analytical form. This is achieved by finding the solution for the associated low-Reynolds-number flow around such a fiber using the methods of complex analysis. Solutions of the dynamical system display the “flipping” and “scooping” recently observed in Cited by: 3.
