Simulating Blood Cells and Blood Flow
Blood performs a multitude of functions on its way through our body, from the transport of oxygen to the immune response after infections. In addition, the circulatory system may be also affected by injuries which cause bleeding, by the formation of plaques in arteries which cause coronary heart disease, and it provides the pathway for the organism invasion by bacteria or viruses. Thus, modeling of blood flow and its functions is an important challenge with many medical implications, but also with many interesting physical phenomena.
