International Scientific Journal


A numerical method based on the one-way coupling using the Jeffery equation is presented. The influence of the inlet velocity and the initial orientation on the evolution of fiber orientation is investigated. It is observed that the rotation mainly contributes to the pressure rise, and the flow structure is not obviously altered. Due to the one-way coupling, the effects of the inlet velocity and the rotating rate are insignificant.
