Modelling of blood flow and blood coagulation

In this work we study blood flows where blood cells are modelled as deformable membranes and blood plasma with the DPD method. Separation of erythrocytes and platelets in flow is shown for different values of hematocrit. Migration of leucocyte to the vessel wall and its rolling along the wall is observed. Blood flow models developed in this work are used to study blood coagulation and clot growth.
