Article
We consider a two-dimensional (2-D) model of an autophoretic particle. Beyond a certain emission/absorption rate (characterized by a dimensionless Péclet number, $Pe$ ) the particle is known to undergo a bifurcation from a non-motile to a motile state, with different trajectories, going from a straight to a chaotic motion by increasing $Pe$ . From...

The transition to dripping in the gravity-driven flow of a liquid film under an inclined plate is investigated at zero Reynolds number. Computations are carried out on a periodic domain assuming either a fixed fluid volume or a fixed flow rate for a hierarchy of models: two lubrication models with either linearised curvature or full curvature (the...
Preprint
In this paper, we propose a cusp-capturing physics-informed neural network (PINN) to solve variable-coefficient elliptic interface problems whose solution is continuous but has discontinuous first derivatives on the interface. To find such a solution using neural network representation, we introduce a cusp-enforced level set function as an addition...
Preprint
In this work, a new hybrid neural-network and finite-difference method is developed for solving Poisson equation in a regular domain with jump discontinuities on an embedded irregular interface. Since the solution has low regularity across the interface, when applying finite difference discretization to this problem, an additional treatment account...

Article
The motion of an autophoretic spherical particle in a simple fluid is analyzed. This motion is powered by a chemical species which is absorbed or emitted by the particle and which diffuses and is advected in the surrounding fluid. The transition from the nonmotile to the motile state occurs if the Péclet number Pe (defined as the ratio of the solut...
Preprint
In this paper, we introduce a mesh-free physics-informed neural network for solving partial differential equations on surfaces. Based on the idea of embedding techniques, we write the underlying surface differential equations using conventional Cartesian differential operators. With the aid of level set function, the surface geometrical quantities,...

Locomotion is essential for living cells. It enables bacteria and algae to explore space for food, cancer to spread, and immune system to fight infections. Motile cells display trajectories of intriguing complexity, from regular (e.g. circular, helical, and so on) to irregular motions (run-tumble), the origin of which has remained elusive for over...

We consider a 2D model of an autophoretic particle in which the particle has a circular shape and emits/absorbs a solute that diffuses and is advected by the suspending fluid. Beyond a certain emission/absorption rate (characterized by a dimensionless P\'eclet number, $Pe$) the particle is known to undergo a bifurcation from a non motile to a motil...

Autonomous locomotion is a ubiquitous phenomenon in biology and in physics of active systems at microscopic scale. This includes prokaryotic, eukaryotic cells (crawling and swimming) and artificial swimmers. An outstanding feature is the ability of these entities to follow complex trajectories, ranging from straight, curved (circular, helical...),...

We consider the Cahn–Hilliard (CH) equation with a Burgers-type convective term that is used as a model of coarsening dynamics in laterally driven phase-separating systems. In the absence of driving, it is known that solutions to the standard CH equation are characterized by an initial stage of phase separation into regions of one phase surrounded...

We explore contact line instabilities of a thin films flowing in a funnel. The funnel geometry involves additional azimuthal curvature, and it also leads to a convergent flow and corresponding thickening of the film, which may play a role in determining the stability properties. Many different limiting cases are identified. We report experimental f...

We propose a simple and efficient class of direct solvers for Poisson equation in finite or infinite domains related to spherical geometry. The solver was developed based on truncated spherical harmonics expansion, where the differential mode equations were solved by second-order finite difference method without handling coordinate singularities. T...
Article
The swimming of a rigid phoretic particle in an isotropic fluid is studied numerically as a function of the dimensionless solute emission rate (or Péclet number Pe). The particle sets into motion at a critical Pe. Whereas the particle trajectory is straight at a small enough Pe, it is found that it loses its stability at a critical Pe in favor of a...

The flow of an electrified liquid film down an inclined plane wall is investigated with the focus on coherent structures in the form of travelling waves on the film surface, in particular, single-hump solitary pulses and their interactions. The flow structures are analysed first using a long-wave model, which is valid in the presence of weak inerti...

A numerical continuation method is developed to follow time-periodic travelling-wave solutions of both local and non-local evolution partial differential equations (PDEs). It is found that the equation for the speed of the moving coordinate can be derived naturally from the governing equations together with a condition that breaks the translational...

We discuss the behavior of partially wetting liquids on a rotating cylinder using the model of Thiele [J. Fluid Mech. 671, 121-136 (2011)] that takes into account the effects of gravity, viscosity, rotation, surface tension and wettability. Such a system can be considered as a prototype for many other systems where the interplay of spatial heteroge...

A mesoscopic continuum model is employed to analyze the transport mechanisms and structure formation during the redistribution stage of deposition experiments where organic molecules are deposited on a solid substrate with periodic stripe-like wettability patterns. Transversally invariant ridges located on the more wettable stripes are identified a...

We consider a coating flow of nematic liquid crystal (NLC) fluid film on an inclined substrate. Exploiting the small aspect ratio in the geometry of interest, a fourth-order nonlinear partial differential equation is used to model the free surface evolution. Particular attention is paid to the interplay between the bulk elasticity and the anchoring...

We analyze coherent structures in nonlocal dispersive active-dissipative nonlinear systems, using as a prototype the Kuramoto-Sivashinsky (KS) equation with an additional nonlocal term that contains stabilizing/destabilizing and dispersive parts. As for the local generalized Kuramoto-Sivashinsky (gKS) equation (see, e.g., [T. Kawahara and S. Toh, P...

We investigate a weakly nonlinear equation that arises in the modelling of wave dynamics on a liquid film flowing down an inclined plane when a turbulent gas flows above it. The model is the Kuramoto-Sivashinsky equation with an additional non-local term multiplied by a parameter representing the relative importance of the turbulent gas. The non-lo...

The flow of nematic liquid crystals down an inclined substrate is studied. Under the usual long wave approximation, a fourth-order nonlinear parabolic partial differential equation of the diffusion type is derived for the free surface height. The model accounts for elastic distortions of the director field due to different anchoring conditions at t...

We discuss the long-wave hydrodynamic model for a thin film of nematic liquid crystal in the limit of strong anchoring at the free surface and at the substrate. We rigorously clarify how the elastic energy enters the evolution equation for the film thickness in order to provide a solid basis for further investigation: several conflicting models exi...

Experiments by Poulard and Cazabat [Langmuir 21, 6270 (2005)] on spreading droplets of nematic liquid crystal (NLC) reveal a surprisingly rich variety of behavior, including at least two different emerging length scales resulting from a contact line instability. In earlier work [Cummings, Lin, and Kondic, Phys. Fluids 23, 043102 (2011)] we modified...
