Blood flows

The most prominent example of a biofluid is blood. What makes blood flows so fascinating from a physical point of view is the coupling between the elastic behavior of the red blood cells and the viscous behavior of the surrounding plasma. This interaction creates a wealth of fascinating and often poorly understood phenomena.

Here we use two different computational tools (Boundary Integral and Lattice-Boltzmann) to investigate blood flow phenomena: Starting from the dynamics of a single red blood cell in a tube up to complex clustering phenomena of artificial microparticles in branching blood vessels.
