MINI-SYMPOSIA - Simulation of Micro-engineering and Bio-engineering

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is nowadays using advanced computer hardware, solution methods and geometry visualization to achieve high-fidelity modelling of the fluid dynamics prevailing in natural and technological micro-scale and biological systems. Increasingly, systems featuring micro- and nano-scale engineering to address challenges in process engineering, manufacturing, biotechnology and medicine need to couple modelling and scale-resolving simulation of physical, chemical and biological processes with CFD. Multi-physics multi-scale modelling of micro-, bio- and biomicrofluidic systems for such technologies will increasingly rely on the modelling featuring fewer compromises in the capturing of flow geometry and flow physics, as well as in capturing of the micro-scale processes associated with interactions between surfaces, interfaces, membranes and cells.

This Mini-Symposium will draw together scientists and engineers with an interest in the use of computational modelling and simulation of fluid flows in the fields of micro-engineering and bio-engineering. Authors are invited to contribute papers on any topic relevant to this symposium.

Topics could include, but are not limited to, the following areas where CFD is involved:

      • Methods for the simulation of microfluidic systems (incl. non-continuum effects),
      • Methods for the simulation of biological flow systems (incl. biological systems modelling),
      • Microfluidic flow physics,
      • Microbiological flow physics,
      • Fluid dynamics in vivo (incl. vascular dynamics, hemodynamics etc.),
      • MEMS,
      • Microstructured unit operations,
      • Micro-engineered soft-matter systems,
      • Micro- and nano-structured functional surfaces (incl. microstructured, textured, coated and biomaterial surfaces),
      • Micro- and bio-related phoresis (electro-, dielectro-, thermo-, acousto-, among others),
      • Sensors, lab-on-a-chip and chemical detection,
      • Pharmaceutical devices and drug delivery,
      • Cell culture and tissue engineering,
      • Cell-fluid dynamics/multiphase flows.
