The study of the effect of leukocyte adhesion on blood flow in small vessels is of primary interest to understand the resistance changes in venular microcirculation. Available computational fluid dynamic studies provide information on the effect of leukocyte adhesion when blood is considered as a homogeneous Newtonian fluid. In the present work we aim to understand the effect of leukocyte adhesion on the non-Newtonian Casson fluid flow of blood in small venules; the Casson model represents the… CONTINUE READING
