The displacement of a three-dimensional immiscible blob subject to oscillatory acoustic excitation in a channel is studied with the Lattice Boltzmann method. The effects of amplitude of the force, viscosity and frequency on blob dynamics are investigated. The trend for variation of mean displacement of blob and frequency response is in agreement to that of the previous two-dimensional studies reported in literature. The response of the blob with pinned contact line shows underdamped behavior. It is also found that increasing the amplitude of the force increases the mean displacement and frequency response.
