Numerical simulation of particle motion in an ultrasound field using the lattice Boltzmann model

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

In this paper we investigate the motion of small particles suspended in a fluid through which an ultrasound field is propagating. The application of the lattice Boltzmann model to this problem is considered using a two dimensional model. Particles in an ultrasound field are observed to move with a mean particle motion. Further, the time-averaged force on a fixed cylinder is computed and found to be in good agreement with a theoretical expression for the radiation force. Simulations are performed with a single particle, although the approach can equally be applied for a larger number of particles.
