Hi everyone!

I want to analyse how bacteria swim in water with low reynolds number environment.

I want to model bacteria as a slender rod with four flagella around it. Flagella are elastic tails which has motor at the base. These motors rotate flagella clockwise or anticlockwise with 100 hz speed.

How to make this model in flow3D.

Any help will be appreciated
