          About This Event

          Summary

          Title: Model for Complex Fluid-Structure Interaction in Sperm aand Ciliary Motility

          Speaker: Robert Dillon, Washington State University

          Abstract: The motility of sperm flagella and cilia are based on a common

          axonemal structure.  This structure is capable of generating a wide

          range of dynamical behavior modulated by signaling molecules as well

          as the properties of the fluid environment. We describe a

          fluid-mechanical model for the axoneme coupling the internal force

          generation of dynein molecular motors through the passive elastic

          axonemal structure with the external fluid mechanics. As shown in

          numerical simulations, the model's flagellar waveform depends strongly

          on viscosity as well as dynein strength. We show an extension of our

          original model for Newtonian fluids to complex viscoelastic fluids in

          order to model mucus transport by cilia in the respiratory tract as

          well as sperm motility in reproduction. These immersed boundary models

          for sperm and ciliary motility in complex fluids explore continuum

          approaches such as Oldroyd-B as well as Lagrangian moving mesh

          methods.
