Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this short paper, we present three distinct numerical treatments for immersed boundaries with different mass density than the surrounding fluid. We start with some background information on the immersed boundary method and its application in the modeUng of biological fluids. The selected numerical example demonstrates the potential in modeling complex biological fluids involving charged particles under both viscous fluid and electrokinetic forces.
