  • Review of CFD Based Simulations to Study the Hemodynamics of Cerebral
           Aneurysms

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The human circulatory system facilitates supply of oxygen and nutrients to all the tissues in the body. This system consists of a net-work of closed-compliant tubes (the aorta, arteries, arterioles, capillaries, venules and veins, etc) of various sizes and lengths, start and terminate at the chambers of the heart. However, continuous flow of blood through these vessels is the genesis for the development of a number of circulation-related medical emergencies such as, myocardial infarction, stroke etc. Most problems in cerebral circulatory disorders are due to formation of constrictions, bulges, blockages or leakages. Correspondingly, the blood vessels are subjected to stenosis, aneurysms, stroke, brain hemorrhage etc. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) engineers can employ mathematical models to analyze a number of what-if type scenarios of clinical interest, for patient-specific conditions. Present study covers cerebrovascular disorders such as Moyamoya Angiopathy (MMA), Arteriovenous malformations (AVM), Stroke, Stenosis and aneurysms in a broader sense, as the CFD tools are similar for all these flow problems. Literature is replete with modeling tools, methods for supporting clinical decisions prior to surgical/ endovascular intervention. Typically, CFD-based modeling starts with a radiological scan to identify the underlying disease-specific condition to segment the region of interest. Identified geometry is meshed and simulated with the aid of CFD-based solvers to develop hemodynamic parameters of clinical interest. Present study reviews the state-of-the-art regarding such tools and analyzes the modeling steps involved. This review is limited to the cerebrovascular disorders and the modelling of aneurysm rupture-risk prediction tools of importance to clinical decision making. In this review, a brief of CFD analysis of various clinical management options such as clipping, coiling, bypass etc are presented. Although most analysis is based on clinical parameters coupled with radiological features on a population cohort, CFD based tools are gradually gaining prominence. Development of reliable tools with and without fluid–structure interaction are central to providing confidence to the clinicians. Understanding blood flow and enabling necessary perfusion to various parts of the body is important to our healthy living and survival.

  • Numerical Studies on Magnetic Driven Targeted Drug Delivery in Human
           Vasculature

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Magnetic driven targeted drug delivery (TDD) involves the manipulation of magnetic drug carriers, such as nano/micro particles or bubbles, within the body using external magnetic fields to precisely reach the intended target location. This method is utilized in treating severe illnesses like cancerous tumors and nervous disorders, offering higher efficacy with reduced drug dosages and side effects. While numerous studies have simulated magnetic driven TDD, comprehensive reviews remain scarce. This article presents an extensive review of computational/numerical work done on magnetic driven TDD utilizing both microbubbles and non-bubbles (nano/micro particles) within human vasculature and lung airways. The study aims to analyze the drug delivery problem from physical and numerical perspectives. Key highlights include artery wall models (rigid, flexible, or porous), models of force acting on particles, relevant governing equations, discussions on parameters of interest and their effects on drug delivery efficacy. Finally, the article briefly outlines common trends observed in magnetic driven TDD problems and their underlying physical principles.

      Abstract: Abstract This review article traces the development of the Volume-Of-Solid immersed boundary method, referred to as VOS-IB, over the last decade. Starting from its simple beginnings inspired by the Volume-Of-Fluid method in multiphase flow, we discuss the evolution of this technique and its extensions for problems in Boussinesq and non-Boussinesq flows, conjugate heat transfer, multi-fluid flows, fluid–structure interactions, and turbulent flows. A critical assessment of the strengths and limitations of the VOS-IB technique is presented and possible directions for future research, both in terms of development of the method and its applications, are outlined.

  • A Critical Review of Multiphase Modelling of Blood Flow in Human
           Cardiovascular System

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In the human body, blood acts as a transporter of oxygen and other nutrients as well as carbon dioxide and other waste materials to and from all the organs. Therefore, continuous supply of blood to all the organs is critical for proper functioning of the human body. Blood is a complex fluid and has more than 40% flexible particles which include red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and other proteins suspended in a water-like fluid, plasma. The dynamics of blood flow, known as haemodynamics, is critical in the development, diagnosis and treatment planning of vascular diseases and design and development of cardiovascular devices. Whilst the most advanced flow measurement techniques such as X-ray imaging, magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound imaging are used in the diagnosis and treatment of vascular diseases, it is not possible to obtain the complete information of pressure and velocity field experimentally via in vivo methods. Therefore, in silico methods or computational modelling techniques are being increasingly employed not only to understand the haemodynamics but also for use in the clinical setting. Whilst blood is treated as a homogeneous, single-phase fluid in several studies, it is possible to capture several features of the flow of blood only by modelling it as a multiphase fluid. A number of approaches have been adopted to model multiphase flow of blood. A broad categorisation can be based on whether the cell boundary is captured explicitly, e.g. immersed boundary method, or the phases are treated as interpenetrating and two or more phases can exist simultaneously at a point, e.g. Euler–Euler method. In the literature, both the approaches have been adopted to model the flow of blood. Particle-based methods, such as smoothed particle hydrodynamics and dissipative particle dynamics have also been employed by researchers to study the complex interactions associated with the flow of blood. In this article, we discuss different multiphase modelling approaches and their application in the haemodynamics modelling.

      Abstract: Abstract Hydrodynamics of slender flexible filaments plays an important role in biology, human physiology, locomotion of organisms, as well as biomedical devices. It is, therefore, important to utilize efficient and accurate numerical models for capturing fluid–structure interaction involving flexible slender structures for numerically simulating such biological systems. In this review article, several computational techniques for evolving the hydrodynamics of slender flexible filaments have been discussed. Special emphasis has been placed on continuous forcing immersed boundary method and slender body theory due to their utility in efficient simulation of thin rod-like filaments.

  • Computational Models of the Fluid Mechanics of the Stomach

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In the last 2 decades, the interest in developing computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models of the stomach has grown steadily. This bean-shaped organ plays a key role in our digestive system by chemically and physically processing food before emptying it into the intestines. The stomach walls drive the flow of the contents to achieve mixing, grinding, and emptying of the contents. Most computational models prescribe the motion of the walls and solve for the flow field inside the lumen, but some recent models also incorporate fluid–structure interaction between the muscles and the contents. Some models employ a simplified two-dimensional or axisymmetric geometry, while others use anatomically realistic stomach shapes. The emptying mechanism employed by the model and the inclusion, or lack thereof, of the pylorus further add to the nonconformity among the different models. In this review, we summarise these different CFD models of the stomach available in the literature. A comparison between these models with regard to their complexity, validation, and specificity is presented. While there has been rapid progress in the past few years, computational models are still far behind their other physiological counterparts, such as cardiovascular flows.

  • Fish-Inspired Oscillating and/or Undulating Hydrofoil in a Free Stream
           Flow: A Review on Thrust Generation Mechanisms

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract A review of recent literature on thrust generation mechanisms by a hydrofoil, bioinspired from fish locomotion is presented. The present work considers fish-inspired periodic kinematics of three types: pitching, heaving, and undulations along with the combination of some of these motions. The pitching corresponds to the tail of the fish while heaving and undulation correspond to that of the body. The undulation also corresponds to the surface of the body; for certain fishes. Both numerical and experimental studies in this arena have been reviewed. The present review follows the classification of oscillatory and undulatory motion. We discuss oscillatory motion with emphasis on pitching, heaving, and the combination of these two motions. In undulatory motion, we cover body undulation and surface undulation motion as a propulsive mechanism. We compare and contrast wake signatures, thrust, and propulsive efficiencies for different motion types. A future outlook, which may help researchers to identify open questions, has been provided.

  • A Review of the Accuracy of Direct Numerical Simulation Tools for the
           Simulation of Non-Spherical Bubble Collapses

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Numerical methods for the simulation of cavitation processes have been developed for more than 50 years. The rich variety of physical phenomena triggered by the collapse of a bubble has several applications in medicine and environmental science but requires the development of sophisticated numerical methods able to capture the presence of sharp interfaces between fluids and solid/elastic materials, the generation of shock waves and the development of non-spherical modes. One important challenge faced by numerical methods is the important temporal and scale separation inherent to the process of bubble collapse, where many effects become predominant during very short time lapses around the instant of minimum radius when the simulations are hardly resolved. In this manuscript, we provide a detailed discussion of the parameters controlling the accuracy of direct numerical simulation in general non-spherical cases, where a new theoretical analysis is presented to generalize existing theories on the prediction of the peak pressures reached inside the bubble during the bubble collapse. We show that the ratio between the gridsize and the minimum radius allows us to scale the numerical errors introduced by the numerical method in the estimation of different relevant quantities for a variety of initial conditions.

  • Computational Hemodynamics in Human Vasculature: A Review on Role of
           Rheology, Multiphase Flow, and Fluid–Structure Interaction

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Efficient and accurate computational model for blood flow dynamics (hemodynamics), is essential for determining optimal treatment strategy, diagnosis, and pathology identification of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs). The focus of the present review paper is to discuss on critical aspects of hemodynamics. Various numerical methods for computational hemodynamics are examined—addressing three key modeling choices. First, the relevance of non-Newtonian hemorheological models in varying vascular conditions is presented. Second, an assessment of single-phase versus multiphase modeling’s validity, for different arterial geometries, is presented. Lastly, investigation on the impact of arterial wall elasticity on blood flow patterns is carried out and a discussion on the necessity of fluid–structure interaction (FSI) model is presented. By surveying diverse scenarios of blood flow modeling, presented in recent literature, it is observed that non-Newtonian behavior significantly impacts severely stenosed arteries or those with low diameters and Womersley numbers, while larger arteries exhibit characteristics similar to Newtonian fluids. Differences between single-phase and multiphase modeling vary with arterial configurations, showcasing notable particle migration effects in curved and branched arteries. Additionally, arterial wall elasticity’s influence varies across scenarios—highlighting the importance of FSI, particularly in diseased states. The article identifies crucial areas for future research to enhance CFD-based hemodynamic modeling, emphasizing the integration of multiphase simulation with non-linear elastic arteries, considering surrounding tissue effects in FSI, innovating patient-specific CAD geometries, and developing faster computational techniques.

  • Volume of Fluid Method: A Brief Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Understanding and predicting multiphase flows is of great relevance due to the ubiquitous nature of such flows in both nature and in many industrial applications. Rapid development of high speed computers and problem-specific algorithms in the last 2 decades has enabled the study of multiphase flows through numerical simulations. In this paper, we give a brief overview of different methods used in direct numerical simulations of two-phase flows. In particular, we focus on the volume of fluid (VOF) method used for locating and advecting the interface. VOF method is a mesh based interface capturing method in which a scalar function called void fraction field (which is the ratio of tracked fluid to the cell volume) is advected in order to track the interface position. A geometric VOF algorithm is detailed in this work. which strikes a balance between accuracy, ease of implementation and volume conservation on a structured grid. Another challenge in two-phase flow simulations is the inclusion of surface tension forces accurately. Here, we give a brief overview of Eulerian surface tension models and detail an approach balancing computational cost, curvature estimation and imposed timestep restriction. Finally, we discuss the most recent advances in VOF methods and outline the various numerical challenges we expect to encounter.

  • A Review of Interface-Driven Adaptivity for Phase-Field Modeling of
           Fluid–Structure Interaction

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In this paper, we systematically review interface-driven mesh adaptation procedures for the phase-field modeling of fluid–structure interaction problems. One of the popular ways of handling fluid–structure interaction problems involving large solid deformations is the fully Eulerian approach. In this procedure, we use a fixed computational grid over which a diffused interface description can be used to evolve the fluid–structure boundary. The Eulerian solid representation and a diffuse interface method necessitate the use of adaptive mesh refinement to achieve reasonable accuracy for the problem at hand. We explore the usage of mesh refinement techniques for such FSI problems and focus specifically on interface-driven adaptivity. We present comparisons among various error indicators for the adaptive procedure of the unstructured mesh. We finally explore some possible future directions and challenges in the field.

  • Bio-inspired Flapping Wing Aerodynamics: A Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The design of micro aerial vehicles has been long inspired by biological flyers such as birds and insects. The aerodynamic principles of flapping wing flights are complex due to the rapid wing motion and the inherent complex vortex dynamics. Several experimental and numerical investigations have been carried out in the past decades to uncover the mechanisms responsible for the improved aerodynamic capability of flapping wings. This paper provides an overview of the aerodynamics of flapping insect wings. After providing a brief overview of the aerodynamics of a single wing, we discuss how the vortex dynamics are altered in the case of tandem wings. A significant challenge to designing a stable MAV is the environmental effects stemming from the gust and ground presence. In this paper, we present how the force generation is altered due to such effects. Moreover, we point out unsolved research questions on insect flight whose answers could greatly help to improve the design of flapping wing MAVs.

In India, there are at least 104 species of social wasps out of about 1100 known species worldwide and they belong to 13 genera. Polistes is the largest genus with 42 species followed by the genus Ropalidia with 27 species. Each species is provided with its current taxonomic status, along with notes on ecology, biology and distribution on the Indian subcontinent. The study of social wasps is important in several ways, as they form valuable groups to understand the evolution of social life at different levels.

      Abstract: Abstract Polistes is considered as one of the most widely and abundantly distributed, speciose genera of primitively eusocial wasps. The biology and behaviour of Polistes have been crucial to understanding the cooperation and conflicts among the nest members and have contributed greatly to our understanding of the functionality and evolution of eusociality. However, despite the wide geographical distribution, our perception of the genus has been shaped largely by the studies on the temperate species of Polistes. The diversity of Polistes species in Asia has been reflected through taxonomic reports but their nesting biology and behaviour are mostly unknown. Empirical studies on their behaviour in response to alternate conditions, like experimental removal of the queens, availability of extra food, etc. are also rare. The geographical origin of Polistes is also disputed. The speculation that Polistes originated in oriental regions can neither be confirmed nor refuted due to the lack of knowledge on Asian Polistes. Such missing information creates a large lacuna in our understanding of the origin and routes of dispersal of the genus. Here, we review the scattered studies on Asian Polistes and attempt to summarise and analyse the available taxonomic, behavioural and phylogenetic information. To date, 76 Polistes species have been reported from 31 Asian countries, out of which Vietnam, India and Japan have the maximum numbers of species. We also review the available behavioural studies on Polistes, mostly qualitative and conducted in Japan to show how these can provide a different perspective on Polistes biology. We also try to point out the major questions that need to be answered to get a broader overview of Asian Polistes. We suggest that more behavioural and phylogenetic studies on various species of Asian Polistes could provide the answers to questions like the geographic origin of the species, the evolution of hibernation (reproductive diapause) in the species, the diversification of nest founding strategies, the queen control on worker reproduction, etc.
