Aggregation in deterministic flows is simulated using a chaotic flow, a regular flow, and a flow with both regular and chaotic regions. Whenever particles of diameter d0 touch each other, they form rigid clusters that move as a unit. The model produces fractal aggregates whose morphology can be controlled by tuning flow parameters.
