A two-chamber model of valveless pumping using the immersed boundary method. (English) Zbl 1163.76011
Summary: We present a new mathematical model of valveless pumping for a tube with two elastic chambers, which is motivated by the Liebau two-tank model [G. Liebau, Naturwissenschaften 41, 327–328 (1954)]. The tube is partially soft and partially (almost) rigid, and the periodic pumping is applied at the asymmetric location of the soft tube. The immersed boundary method is used to investigate the important characteristics of valveless pumping as the previous experiments and mathematical models have been discovered. We observe the existence of a unidirectional mean flow and the dependence of mean flows on the frequency and on the compression duration of periodic pumping. We are able to explain the occurrence of local maximum or minimum mean flows due to the resonances of the system.
