Water droplets in the shower are shown colored by velocity magnitude. Filled contours of pressure are indicated on the shower curtain.

Assistant professor David Schmidt from the University of Massachusetts has been puzzled by the annoying tendency of shower curtains to billow in during a shower and stick to the leg or arm of the person attempting to bathe. An expert in modeling sprays and jet breakup, Schmidt decided to use some of his custom spray models in FLUENT to analyze this conundrum.

Professor Schmidt was a founder of Convergent Thinking LLC, a software firm that models sprays, particularly in turbulent or combusting environments. Convergent Thinking is a Fluent partner, and the spray models are available for use with FLUENT software. Of particular interest is the Taylor analogy breakup, or TAB model, which is used to describe the breakup of a jet into successively smaller drops. Based on an analogy between an oscillating droplet and a forced mass-spring system, the model has been shown to accurately predict experimentally observed jet and drop breakup mechanics.

Longstanding theories have attributed the shower curtain behavior to a combination of two phenomena: the chimney (or buoyancy) effect, and the Bernoulli effect. Because of buoyancy, the heated air inside the shower rises, and cooler air from outside the shower is entrained below the curtain to fill the void left by the rising air. Since the shower curtain has been found to billow even during cold showers, this effect is believed to account only partially for the curtain behavior (or not at all). According to Bernoulli’s equation, the static pressure in a fluid decreases as the fluid velocity increases. Comparing the driven air flow inside the shower (as a result of momentum transfer from the shower spray) with the stagnant air outside, the pressure is lower inside the curtain than outside it. This pressure differential would account for the curtain movement, independent of the temperature of the water.

Velocity vectors show the movement of air in the shower. In addition to the drag-induced motion in the vicinity of the shower, there is a large recirculation pattern above it.

Using the TAB model, Schmidt created a 3D model of his mother-in-law’s shower, where the curtain was well known to exhibit the offending behavior. The coupled flow of water droplets and air in an isothermal environment revealed some surprising results. In particular, the inside air, driven by the shower spray, was found to form a vortex with its axis normal to the plane of the curtain. The low pressure at the center of the vortex, reminiscent of the low pressure at the center of a hurricane, was found to be lower than that caused by the Bernoulli effect alone. While it is cert ainly a combination of the vortex, Bernoulli effect, and buoyancy that lead to t he curtain behavior in a hot shower, Schmidt’s results suggest that the vortex motion is the dominant factor that drives this phenomenon.


The shower curtain deflection shown here (not to scale) was computed using a force balance.

“Until now, it has been one person’s word against another’s,” Schmidt said. “I thought that it would be fun to use FLUENT to say more definitively what the effect was. The air moves in a stable circle just like a dust devil indoors. Unlike a dust devil, however, the shower vortex doesn’t die out because it is continuously driven by the shower. Anyone can test my model. The best way to see it is to turn on the shower – cold water will do fine. Use a light, thin shower curtain and a strong showerhead. Stand outside the shower, stick your head in, and blow in smoke. You will see how the vortex is driven by the water droplets.”

Shower curtains have become an important aspect of every bathroom décor these days. These are cheaper and you can coordinate with various colors and designs. It is however important that you regularly clean them as they have high chances of getting dirty and acquiring mould and mildew stains quite often.
Shower curtains cleaning is pretty simple.

1.) Machine wash:

machine washing shower curtain

If your shower curtains is not very delicate and can be machine washed, simply put your shower curtain for a wash in the machine. Machine washable shower curtains do not get damaged if you wash them carefully in low temperature.

Put the shower curtain in the washer and add your regular detergent that you use for laundry. Now add one or two clean white towels to it. Towels act as a scrubber, cleaning the curtains gently as usually shower curtains are slippery. These also prevent tugging and tearing of the shower curtains.

With the detergent, you can also use some baking soda to enhance the cleaning of the shower curtains. Doing this is especially helpful when you have tough moulds and mildew the shower curtain. Later add white vinegar during the rinse cycle. Baking powder plus vinegar is an old age formula to combat heavy moulds and stains.

After the cleaning is done, air dry the shower curtain. Never dry a shower curtain in the machine, you should always hang it to drip and air dry.

You will get a clean sparkling and renewed shower curtain!

* If there is a lot of tough mildew and other stains on your translucent or white shower curtain, you can also add a cup of bleach to get rid of them. Note that bleach should be added only to white or transparent shower curtains.

2.) Hand wash:

hand wash shower curtain

For shower curtains that cannot be machine washed you can hand wash them too.
Soak your shower curtain in water and a mixture of natural detergent for some time. Then, on a damp cloth and coat it with a layer of baking soda. Scrub the shower curtain gently with this damp cloth. Leave the tough stains alone for now and focus on overall cleaning of the basic stains.

Take another clean damp cloth and wipe clean all the baking powder off the shower curtain. Make sure that you clean it all properly.

Now, coming to the tough stains, damp a cloth and add a layer of baking soda. Rub the stains properly making sure to remove all the moulds and mildew accumulated over time.

Again clean off the baking powder from the shower curtain using water and a clean damp cloth. Ensure that no traces of baking soda are left on the shower curtain.
Hang- dry the shower curtain.

*Additional Tips:

– Always keep your shower curtain clean, make sure you use a liner with decorative shower curtains.

– You can switch to body wash in place of soaps as soap generally forms scum and gets accumulated on the shower curtain.

– Regular cleaning of the shower curtain reduces the accumulation of moulds and mildew on the shower curtain.

– Spray the shower curtain with a mixture of water and vinegar in equal ratio after every shower. You can also add a few drops of lemon for fragrance.

– Clean the hem of your shower curtain thoroughly with a mixture of vinegar and water with a brush to remove any accumulated scum or molds.
