Clustering of small rigid spherical particles into particle accumulation structures (PAS) is studied numerically for a highPrandtlnumber (Pr = 68) thermocapillary liquid bridge. The onewaycoupling approach is used for calculation of the particle motion, modeling PAS as an attractor for a single particle. The attractor is created by dissipative forces acting on the particle near the boundary due to the finite size of the particle. These forces can dramatically deflect the particle trajectory from a fluid pathline and transfer it to certain tubular flow structures, called Kolmogorov–Arnold–Moser (KAM) tori, in which the particle is focused and from which it might not escape anymore. The transfer of particles can take place if a KAM torus, which is a property of the flow without particles, enters the narrow boundary layer on the flow boundaries in which the particle experiences extra forces. Since the PAS obtained in this system depends mainly on the finite particle size, it can be classified as a finitesize coherent structure (FSCS).
