Instantaneous snapshots for the internal wave study. Fixed particles are arranged in a hexagonal packing immersed in the heavy (red) fluid. a Initially, a lock of dense fluid is arranged at one end of the domain, which then b generates a bore propagating to the right at a later time. The vertical slice shows the concentration profile of the heavy (red) and light (blue) fluids. Particles are colored by the lift force acting on them; red and blue indicate positive and negative forces, respectively
