Lattice boltzmann method for simulating the displacement of deformable membrane in fluid

• A lattice Boltzmann method is employed to simulate theinteraction between the deformable membraneand surrounding fluids. The boundary condition and the force exerting on themembrane are handled based on the lattice Boltzmann method. Interactionbetween the membrane and surrounding fluids may cause the membrane tovibrate. The membrane is discretized into segments. Each segment issimplified to a mass particle and connected to its neighbors. The Newtoniandynamic simulation is applied to each segment. The dynamic equation of thedeformable membrane can be simulated according to the force acting on it.The hydrodynamic forces acting on the membrane are obtained by thecomputation of fluid flow stress at the moving boundary using the latticeBoltzmann momentum-exchange method. It can simulate the curved shape withsecond-order accuracy. The fluid flow and membrane deformable equations arecoupled. The membrane as a moving boundary affects the fluid flow, and thedeformation of the membrane is the result of the hydrodynamic force actingon it. In this paper, the configurations of membranes at corresponding timeunder different conditions are computed. In the numerical test, both ends ofthe membrane are fixed and its initial shape is set to be a straight line,its initial vibrant velocity normal to the membrane surface is given to bevaried at different position. The flow is simulated by the lattice Boltzmannmethod with second-order accuracy, and the deformation of the membrane iscomputed using the Newtonian dynamic equation. The results show that theconfiguration of the membrane is closed to its initial straight line in asufficient long time if the membrane is relatively soft or stiff, and theresults agree well with the other published results.
