For the proper simulation of processes inside microfluidic devices, proper model for blood flow must be used. We use the lattice-Boltzmann method for the blood plasma flow and the immersed boundary method for the description of red blood cells and other components of blood. One of the four key mechanisms governing the elastic behaviour of a red blood cell is the in-plane shear modulus of elasticity. The membrane of red blood cell is modeled with a triangular network of springs with stretching…

Recent advances in mesh-based modeling of individual cells in biological fluids
TLDR
This work investigates the relation between mechanical properties of physical cells and the stiffness parameters of underlying meshes, and presents new metric that supplements energy-based approaches in cases when the energy is difficult to calculate.
On modeling blood flow in microfluidic devices
The complex problem of simulating the attributes and abilities of microfluidic chambers can be divided into several interconnected areas like modelling the flow through chambers of various shapes,

TLDR
This paper focuses on spring network models, and a new way of modeling the area preservation modulus is introduced, which takes into account the current shape of the individual triangles and finds the proportional allocation of area conservation forces, which would for individual triangles preserve their shapes.
Mesh-Based Modeling of Individual Cells and Their Dynamics in Biological Fluids
TLDR
This text is focused on mesh-based model and on its capabilities to cover complex mechano-elastic properties combined with adhesion and magnetic phenomena.
