Immersed boundary simulation of drop stability

Journal of Physics: Conference Series. 2021. Vol. 1740. P. 1-6.
Guskova M., Shchur L.

The stability of the quasi-two-dimensional droplet flow is of great importance in microfluidic devices. We check the drop's stability in the square box using the immersed boundary and lattice Boltzmann methods. We implement two-dimensional equations within the immersed boundary approach in the Palabos programming platform. We check the influence
of the boundaries on the drop movement. We estimate fluctuations in the quantities while applying different initial conditions of the linear and angular velocities. We found that the level of fluctuations depends on the symmetrical displacement of drop at the initial state. The effect is connected with the hydrodynamic interaction of drop with the walls.
