Problems in biological fluid dynamics typically involve the interaction of an elastic structure with its surrounding fluid. A unified computational approach, based on an immersed boundary framework, couples the internal force-generating mechanisms of organisms and cells with an external, viscous, incompressible fluid. Computational simulation, in conjunction with laboratory experiment, can provide valuable insight into complex biological systems that involve the interaction of an elastic… CONTINUE READING
