Shear Deformation of Droplets Using DPD
After the formation of droplets using two types of DPD particles, a surfactant is placed on the interface. After relaxation, we generated the results by adding shear to the system. If the shear speed γ increases, the amount of droplet deformation also increases. Also, when the surfactant is present on the interface, the amount of droplet deformation increases as compared to when the activator is not present.
