Forces on objects immersed in active fluidsThomas Speck and •Ashreya Jayaram — Institute of Physics, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Staudingerweg 7-9, 55128 Mainz, Germany

Depending on their shape, objects immersed in active fluids may be subjected to a net force or net torque. We show that in a finite, periodic system, the force/torque on such an object is determined by the vorticity of the polarization of the surrounding active fluid which in turn is localized to regions close to the object where its curvature changes. We find that the system size L has a colossal influence on the magnitude of the force which grows as L2 before saturating to a constant. We relate this force to the current away from the body and substantiate our theoretical results with numerical simulations of active Brownian particles.
