Creeping motion of a solid particle inside a spherical elastic cavity

14 Aug 2018 Daddi-Moussa-Ider Abdallah Löwen Hartmut Gekle Stephan

On the basis of the linear hydrodynamic equations, we present an analytical theory for the low-Reynolds-number motion of a solid particle moving inside a larger spherical elastic cavity which can be seen as a model system for a fluid vesicle. In the particular situation where the particle is concentric with the cavity, we use the stream function technique to find exact analytical solutions of the fluid motion equations on both sides of the elastic cavity...
