Title: Single curved fiber sedimentation under gravity

Author: Rong, Xiaoying; Qi, Dewei; Zhu, Junyong Scott;

Date: 2005

Source: Proceedings of the 2005 TAPPI Practical Papermaking Conference : 2005 May 22-26, Milwaukee, WI. Atlanta, GA : TAPPI Press, 2005: [17] pages.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

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
