On the multi-scale description of micro-structured fluids composed of aggregating rods
TypeArticles dans des revues avec comité de lecture
When addressing the flow of concentrated suspensions composed of rods, dense clusters are observed. Thus, the adequate modelling and simulation of such a flow requires addressing the kinematics of these dense clusters and their impact on the flow in which they are immersed. In a former work, we addressed a first modelling framework of these clusters, assumed so dense that they were considered rigid and their kinematics (flow-induced rotation) were totally defined by a symmetric tensor c with unit trace representing the cluster conformation. Then, the rigid nature of the clusters was relaxed, assuming them deformable, and a model giving the evolution of both the cluster shape and its microstructural orientation descriptor (the so-called shape and orientation tensors) was proposed. This paper compares the predictions coming from those models with finer-scale discrete simulations inspired from molecular dynamics modelling.
