## Paula Vasquez : Coupling macro-micro simulations in biological fluids

- Mathematical Biology ( 0 Views )Some of the most remarkable properties and functions served by complex fluids originate from the interplay between external fields and microstructural dynamics. From a computational point of view this generates a set of challenges related to the need of coupling dynamics at different length and times scales, sometimes spanning several orders of magnitude. Micro-macro simulations have gained a lot of recognition within the field because these methods allow capturing full dynamics at the macroscale without losing resolution at the microscale. In this talk, we will review our efforts to couple existing macroscopic solvers for the Navier-Stokes equations with microstructural dynamics described by Langevin-type equations. In particular, we will discuss dumbbells models -under viscometric and capillary thinning flows fields- and parallel computing using GPUs.
