• Abstract

Lattice Boltzmann simulations based on the Cahn-Hilliard diffuse interface approachare performed for droplet dynamics in viscous ﬂuid under shear ﬂow, where the degree of conﬁnement between two parallel walls can play an important role. The effects of viscosity ratio, capillary number, Reynolds number, and conﬁnement ratio on droplet deformation and break-up in moderately and highly conﬁned shear ﬂows are investigated.
