Sedimentation

Sedimentation

In this section we present the results of our sedimentation study, which is another application example of the MILAMINs mechanical solver. The circular deformable inclusions in a box are subjected to vertical gravity field. Black (heavy) and white (light) inclusions have the same density contrast with respect to the matrix. They are hundred times more viscous than the matrix. The color-scale represents the magnitude of the velocity field, with warm colors corresponding to high values and cold colors to low values.

In the following movie we present results from a sedimentation study with rigid inclusions shaped as ellipses.

We also present results from a sedimentation study with rigid circular inclusions with varying sizes.
