Rigid Circular Inclusions Subject to Simple Shear
A Rigid Circular Inclusion in Anisotropic Host Subject to Simple Shear
We used MILAMINs fast MATLAB-based incompressible Stokes solver to study the flow around a circular rigid inclusion embedded in an anisotropic linear viscous matrix. A schematic representation of the studied model is presented in the figure below.
Evolution of the structure and shear rate distribution with increasing shear strain are presented. The anisotropy factor is equal to 10. An arbitrarily spaced set of lines is used as passive markers for visualizing the structure.
