Description: Dynamics of single curved fiber sedimentation under gravity are simulated by using the lattice Boltzmann method. The results of migration and rotation of the curved fiber at different Reynolds numbers are reported. The results show that the rotation and migration processes are sensitive to the curvature of the fiber.
Keywords: Lattice Boltzmann simulation, fiber suspensions, curved fibers, curvature, Reynolds number, flocculation, papermaking, particles, dispersion, fiber properties, particle shape, fiber curvature, sedimentation analysis, flexibility, Boltzmann method
