Twofold saddle-point formulation of Biot poroelasticity with stress-dependent diffusion

A stress/total-pressure formulation for poroelasticity that includes the coupling with steady nonlinear diffusion modified by stress can be used to study waste removal in the brain parenchyma, where diffusion of a tracer alone or a combination of advection and diffusion are not sufficient to explain the alterations in rates of filtration observed in porous media samples.

A mixture theory-based finite element formulation for the study of biodegradation of poroelastic scaffolds

A mixture theory-based mathematical model of the degradation of a poroelastic solid immersed in a fluid bath is derived from the study of the temporal evolution of biodegradable Tissue Engineered Nerve Guides (TENGs), which are surgical implants supporting the alignment and re-growth of damaged nerves.

Numerical Analysis for an Energy-stable Total Discretization of a Poromechanics Model with Inf-sup Stability

This work considers a previously proposed general nonlinear poromechanical formulation, and derives a linearized version of this model, and proposes a complete discretization strategy with a special concern for issues associated with incompressible or nearly-incompressible behavior.

Coupling chemotaxis and growth poromechanics for the modelling of feather primordia patterning

In this paper we propose a new mathematical model for describing the complex interplay between skin cell populations with fibroblast growth factor and bone morphogenetic protein, occurring within

Arterial vasodilation drives convective fluid flow in the brain: a poroelastic model

Simulations of sleep-like conditions, with larger vasodilations and increased extracellular volume in the brain showed enhanced movement of fluid from the PVS into the ECS, and it was found that arteriolar dilations could drive convective flow through the E CS radially outward from the arteriole, and that this flow is sensitive to the dynamics of the dilation.

Arterial pulsations drive oscillatory flow of CSF but not directional pumping

Simulations match the experimental results and show that arterial pulsations only drive oscillatory motion of CSF in the PVS, and the observed directional CSF flow can be explained by naturally occurring and/or experimenter-generated pressure differences.

Functional hyperemia drives fluid exchange in the paravascular space

Simulations suggest that functional hyperemia may serve to increase metabolite clearance from the PVS, and show that the deformability of the brain tissue needs to be accounted for when studying fluid flow and metabolite transport.
