Abstract

The MPS method is a particle method which simulates motion of continua with a finite number of particles. Thus it is relatively easy to simulate complex flows such as those in a bioreactor in which the geometry of flow is continuously modified by adhesion of cells. In this study, flows with adhesion of cells in a micro channel are simulated using the MPS method. The adhesion pattern of cells is well reproduced by the simulation.
