Biomedical flows

The research on biomedical flows focus on develop mathematical and computational models to study fluid dynamics in biology and medicine. SherwinLab works in collaboration with the Biomedical flow from the Department of Aeronautics of the Imperial College London. The main objective on this research is to provide new procedures for healthcare applications such as disease modelling and engineering of novel biomedical devices.

SherwinLab main research topics in this field are:

  • Geometric classification of peripheral bypass grafting

  • Flow dynamics of arterial bypass grafts

  • Flow forces of arterial branches and their association with arterial disease patterns

  • Modelling of hetrogeneous LDL accumulation due to concentration polarisation

  • Energy and environmental applications such as algal fuel harvesting and bioremediation
