Friction and mobility of many spheres in stokes-flow

Abstract :

An efficient scheme is presented for the numerical calculation of hydrodynamic interactions of many spheres in Stokes flow. The spheres may have various sizes, and are freely moving or arranged in rigid arrays. Both the friction and mobility matrix are found from the solution of a set of coupled equations. The Stokesian dynamics of many spheres and the friction and mobility tensors of polymers and proteins may be calculated accurately at a modest expense of computer memory and time. The transport coefficients of suspensions can be evaluated by use of periodic boundary conditions.
