Contents:
Simulating biofluid-structure interaction with an immersed boundary framework-A review-- The development and advances of the immersed finite element method-- Simulating mucociliary transport using the method of regularized stokeslets-- A regularization method for the numerical solution of doubly-periodic stokes flow-- Dynamics of the primary ciliu8m in time-periodic flows-- Motion of filaments with planar and helical bending waves in a viscous fluid-- Numerical study of scaling effects in peristalsis and dynamic suction pumping-- Multi-bond models for platelet adhesion and cohesion-- Effects of grouping behavior, pulse timing, and organism size on fluid flow around the upside-down jellyfish-- Impacts of facilitated urea transporters on the urine-concentrating mechanism in the rat kidney-- Feedback-mediated dynamics in a model of coupled nephrons with compliant short loop on Henle.
Summary: This volume contains the Proceedings of the AMS Special Session on Biological Fluid Dynamics: Modeling, Computation, and Applications, held on October 13, 2012, at Tulane University, New Orleans, Louisiana. In recent years, there has been increasing interest in the development and application of advanced computational techniques for simulating fluid motion driven by immersed flexible structures. That interest is motivated, in large part, by the multitude of applications in physiology and biology. In some biological systems, fluid motion is driven by active biological tissues, which are typically constructed of fibers that are surrounded by fluid. Not only do the fibers hold the tissues together, they also transmit forces that ultimately result in fluid motion. In other examples, the fluid may flow through conduits such as blood vessels or airways that are flexible or active. That is, those conduits may react to and affect the fluid dynamics. This volume responds to the widespread interest among mathematicians, biologists, and engineers in fluid-structure interactions problems. Included are expository and review articles in biological fluid dynamics. Applications that are considered include ciliary motion, upside-down jellyfish, biological feedback in the kidney, peristalsis and dynamic suction pumping, and platelet cohesion and adhesion.
