MS Candidate Anca Ostace - "Numerical Investigation of the Effect of Inertia on the Hydrodynamic Interaction of Microorganisms"

Essential to the dynamics of semi-dilute and dense suspensions, the pair-wise hydrodynamic interactions between swimming microorganisms has been analyzed in several studies in the recent past. However, most studies have focused on the viscous regime, in the absence of inertia. We examine the e ects of inertia on the interaction of a pair of model microorganisms in the small to intermediate Reynolds number regime, by means of direct numerical simulations.
