Application of Multiphase Computational Fluid Dynamics to Analyze Monocyte Adhesion

Abstract

Study of the mechanisms of monocyte adhesion initiating atheroslerotic lesions has engaged investigators for decades. Single-phase computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analyses fail to account for particulate migration. Consequently, inconsistencies arise when correlating adhesion with wall shear stress (WSS). The purpose of this paper is to present, to our… (More)
