Modeling and numerical simulation of blood flow using the Theory of Interacting Continua.
In this paper we use a modified form of the mixture theory developed by Massoudi and Rajagopal to study the blood flow in a simple geometry, namely flow between two plates. The blood is assumed to behave as a two-component mixture comprised of plasma and red blood cells (RBCs). The plasma is assumed to behave as a viscous fluid whereas the RBCs are given a granular-like structure where the viscosity also depends on the shear-rate.
