Abstract

In this article, two novel numerical methods have been developed for simulating fluid/porous particle interactions in three-dimensional (3D) Stokes flow. The Brinkman-Debye-Bueche model is adopted for the fluid flow inside the porous particle, being coupled with the Stokes equations for the fluid flow outside the particle. The rotating motion of a porous ball and the interaction of two porous balls in bounded shear flows have been studied by these two new methods. The numerical results show that the porous particle permeability has a strong effect on the interaction of two porous balls.
