Biological fluid flows are a key element of a myriad of biological and biotechnological systems.
Computational fluid dynamics plays an important role in the understanding of biological flows
as well as the design and development of efficient biotechnology solutions.
Advances in computer hardware, GPU computing capabilities, and streamlined anatomical geometry
digitization techniques uniquely position computational fluid dynamics at the forefront of
research and development in the field of biological engineering.
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 biological engineering
and biotechnology. Authors are invited to contribute papers on any topic relevant to this
Topics could include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Methods for the simulation of biological flow systems,
- Pharmaceutical devices and drug delivery,
- Hemodynamics and blood flow,
- Cell culture and tissue engineering,
- Cell-fluid dynamics/multiphase flows, and
- Vascular dynamics/fluid-structure interaction.
