Active nematics with anisotropic friction: the decisive role of the flow aligning parameter

12 Mar 2020 Thijssen Kristian Metselaar Luuk Yeomans Julia M. Doostmohammadi Amin

We use continuum simulations to study the impact of anisotropic hydrodynamic friction on the emergent flows of active nematics. We show that, depending on whether the active particles align with or tumble in their collectively self-induced flows, anisotropic friction can result in markedly different patterns of motion...
