Numerical modelling of deformation behaviour of red blood cells in microvessels using the coupled SPH-DEM method
Polwaththe Gallage, Hasitha Nayanajith (2016) Numerical modelling of deformation behaviour of red blood cells in microvessels using the coupled SPH-DEM method. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.
This thesis developed an advanced computational model to investigate the motion and deformation properties of red blood cells in capillaries. The novel model is based on the meshfree particle methods and is capable of modelling the large deformation of red blood cells moving through blood vessels. The developed model was employed to simulate the deformation behaviour of healthy and malaria infected red blood cells as well as the motion of red blood cells in stenosed capillaries.
