Fluid Dynamics of Single Blood Cells in the Microcirculation
The activities related to this contract aim at the development of computational fluid dynamic models to study the motion of blood cells in the microcirculation (e.g. in the liver) as well as
in microfluidic devices for medical applications (lab-on-chip devices). For validation purposes orientation, deformation and interaction phenomena will also be experimentally studied in ad hoc microfabricated microchannels. Fluorescent particles will be observed by microPIV (microparticles imaging velocimetry) technology.
