New Paper: Dense brushes of stiff polymers or filaments in fluid flow

systemA new paper on my part was just published yesterday in  Europhysics Letters [F. Römer, D. A. Fedosov, EPL 109, 68001, doi: 10.1209/0295-5075/109/68001]. It deals with a theory which can predict the behaviour of a dense semi-flexible polymer brush in fluid flow and its influence on the flow field. The theory was evaluated against smooth dissipative particle dynamics (SDPD) simulations. IOP Publishing kindly allows me to provide the PDF on my personal website for download.
