A Rigid Circular Inclusion in Anisotropic Host Subject to Simple Shear

We used MILAMINs fast MATLAB-based incompressible Stokes solver to study the flow around a circular rigid inclusion embedded in an anisotropic linear viscous matrix. A schematic representation of the studied model is presented in the figure below.

A schematic representation of the studied model. In the limit N -> infinity, the host is modeled as an anisotropic fluid. Constant horizontal velocity on the top and bottom walls is prescribed and periodic velocity is imposed on the lateral boundaries in numerical simulations.

Evolution of the structure and shear rate distribution with increasing shear strain are presented. The anisotropy factor is equal to 10. An arbitrarily spaced set of lines is used as passive markers for visualizing the structure.
