Short communication: lubrication forces


Lubrication forces massively impact the collisions of immersed particles, but how can we account for that in an unresolved simulation? That is the question Johan Padding, Marcel Ottens and I asked ourselves, but we could not find a coherent answer in the literature! That is why we wrote this short communication A note on the modelling of lubrication forces in unresolved simulations, in which we provide a unified method based on physics and previous experimental results.
