Swim stress, motion, and deformation of active matter: effect of an external field

Sho C. Takatori, John F. Brady
2014 Soft Matter  
We analyze the stress, dispersion, and average swimming speed of self-propelled particles subjected to an external field, and discuss a method to manipulate soft compressible materials as nano/micromechanical devices and motors.
