Re: [ESPResSo-users] Modelling Fibres in Fluid

Dear Omri,

Regarding the use of the module Object-in-fluid to model fibres, I think it is indeed possible. In this case, the fibres needs to be considered as tubes with some thickness, discretized by a triangular mesh on its surface. This mesh can have its own elasticity that can be tuned with elastic coefficients. 

Recently, we published the following book

Although its primal focus is on blood cell modelling, a huge part of the book is directly devoted to general concepts of mesh models development and is applicable to your problem as well.

If you need further assistance, just let me know,

Dear EspressoMD Users, 
I’m wondering if anyone has had experience modelling and simulating fibre interaction in a suspension using espressoMD?
If you could recommend any references that would be great. I have been looking at the object-in-fluid interactions and doing the background readings.
Any suggestions and help regarding this problem would be greatly appreciated.
All the best, 
Omri Menashe
