About this book

In the past three decades, considerable progress has been made in the mathematical analysis, modeling, and simulation of the fluid dynamics of liquid capsules and biological cells. In this book, leaders in the field explore topics related to the modeling and numerical simulation of capsule fluid dynamics and cell biomechanics. Providing an outstanding overview of the subject, the authors include results from their own ongoing research. The book covers the fundamentals of cell and membrane mechanics, modeling hydrodynamics under various flow conditions, and drop and bubble dynamics associated with temperature variations and surfactant transport. The clear exposition and stand-alone format provided by Modeling and Simulation of Capsules and Biological Cells puts state-of-the-art information in a single source that will undoubtedly motivate further work in this developing field.


Flow-Induced Deformation of Capsules and Cells. Capsule Motion and Deformation induced by Interfacial Transport. Application of Shell Theory to Modeling the Membrane Mechanics of Capsules and Cells. Mechanics of Red Blood Cells and Blood Flow in Narrow Tubes. Multi-Scale Modeling Spanning Receptor, Cell and Blood Vessel Scales.
