Description: Dynamics of single curved fiber sedimentation under the gravity are simulated by using 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: Reynolds number, flocculation, papermaking, particles, dispersion, curvature, particle shape, fiber curvature, sedimentation analysis, flexibility, Boltzmann method, fiber properties
