158 6.2.4 Motion of a suspended rigid fiber The motion of ellipsoids in uniform, viscous shear flow in a Newtonian fluid was analyzed by Jeffery [152-153] in 1922. For a prolate spheroid of aspect ratio r a (defined as the ratio between the mayor axis and the minor axis) in simple shear flow, ( ) 0 , 0 , 3 γ & x = u , the angular motion of the spheroid is described by [152-153], φ φ θ 2 2 2 sin cos tan + = r r J a a K (6.18) and = J r T t a π φ 2 tan tan (6.19) where θ is the angle between the fiber’s major axis and the vorticity axis, i.e. 2 x axis, φ is the angle between the 3 x axis and the 3 1 x x projection of the fiber axis (see Figure 6.14), J T is the orbit period, + = r r J a a T 1 2 γ π & (6.20) and J K is the orbit constant, determined by the initial orientation by, r J a K 0 2 0 2 0 sin cos tan φ φ θ + = (6.21) These equations predict that the spheroid will repeatedly rotate through the same orbit, the particle will not migrate across the streamline, and that the orbit period is independent of the initial orientation.
161 as the application framework. Thus, network delay is negligible. Their arrival rate λ follows the exponential distribution. Each test has duration of 5 minutes. All the assumptions considered during this technical evaluation are listed in Section 6.1.3.3 .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
