- 6 particles falling under gravity in an Oldroyd B fluid [1.5 MB mpg] made from an actual dynamical simulation. It shows particles behave differently in viscoelastic fluids than they do in Newtonian fluids. In Newtonian fluids, particles draft, kiss, and tumble. In viscoelastic fluids, by contrast, particles draft, kiss, and chain. Long chains fall faster than short chains.

- Sedimentation of two elliptic particles in a 2-D channel of an Oldroyd-B fluid [2.5M]. The particles are released side by side initially and wish to chain with their major axis vertical. Particles behave as tumbling, kissing and chaining in a viscoelastic fluid. See the details in the paper "Direct simulation of the sedimentation of elliptic particles in Oldroyd-B fluids".
