Subproject A10

Elastohydrodynamic Interactions of particles flowing over structured surfaces

In this project, interactions between structured surfaces and soft particles or bioparticles that flow over the surface are investigated and modelled. In such situations, the local flow field between the particle and surface influences the motion of the particles, and in consequence their deposition on the surface. The govern-ing interaction forces between particles and surface are investigated experimentally, modelled theoretically and implemented in a finite element simulation of the fluid flow. They will be evaluated regarding their implications for bioparticles and their deposition on microstructured surfaces.
