English abstract:
We report on our current progress in developing a code to be applied in
the context of the cleaning of wafer surfaces by hydromechanical forces.
Our goal is to study the detachment of (submicron) particles, exposed to a
shear flow, from a wall by means of direct numerical simulation.
The particles will be treated as rigid bodies with a two-way
interaction with the fluid.

Our software is based on OpenFOAM.
Following Uhlmann (2005) and Taira(2007) we implement
an immersed boundary method with direct forcing.
The interpolation between the fixed Eulerian grid and the Lagrangian
marker points is performed with the regularized delta-function introduced
by Peskin( 2002). For the time being we implemented this
approach in 2D using OpenFOAM's standard solver
icoFoam to
solve the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations. To validate the
implementation we present results on standard benchmark tests of the
flow around a cylinder with prescribed motion.
