Enhanced transport of flexible fibers by pole vaulting in turbulent wall-bounded flow

Abstract

Long, flexible fibers transported by a turbulent channel flow sample non-linear variations of the fluid velocity along their length. As the fibers tumble and collide with the boundaries, they bounce off with an impulse that propels them toward the center of the flow, similar to pole vaulting. As a result, the fibers migrate away from the walls, leading to depleted regions near the boundaries and more concentrated regions in the bulk. These higher concentrations in the center of the channel result in a greater net flux of fibers than what was initially imposed by the fluid. This effect becomes more pronounced as fiber length increases, especially when it approaches the channel height.
