Flow and Entrainment Mechanisms Around a Freshwater Mussel Aligned With the Incoming Flow

Abstract The paper uses information from eddy‐resolving simulations to characterize flow and turbulence around freshwater mussels at the organism scale. The focus is on the simplest case of a partially burrowed, isolated mussel aligned with the incoming flow in an open channel. The wake structure and the capacity of the flow to displace the mussel […]
