Abstract

This paper describes the numerical solution of the 3-dimensional equations of motion of a viscous incompressible fluid that contains an immersed system of elastic fibers. Implementation details such as vectorization and the efficient use of external memory are discussed. The method is applied to the damped vibrations of a fiber-wound toroidal tube, and empirical evidence of convergence is presented.
