Periodic sedimentation in a Stokesian fluid

Abstract [en]

We study the sedimentation of two identical but nonspherical particles sedimenting in a Stokesian fluid. Experiments and numerical simulations reveal periodic orbits wherein the bodies mutually induce an in-phase rotational motion accompanied by periodic modulations of sedimentation speed and separation distance. We term these tumbling orbits and find that they appear over a broad range of body shapes.
