Abstract

A complex fluid is a substance whose physical characteristics depend on the organization of microscopic structures, which can be modified by external forces. Almost every fluid within the human body is classified as a complex fluid. Blood and mucus, for example, are essential in ridding the body of pathogens and debris. Investigating how flow rate affects the response of different complex fluids is a critical factor in the understanding of biological functions. In this project we analyze a new class of models designed to couple microstructural components with macroscopic responses.
