Most of the pathological conditions are connected with anomalies in the flow of complex fluid (blood) and its interaction with various organs in the human system. A clear and detail understanding of the flow process and mechanism of interaction between the complex fluid (blood) and surrounding organs can help prescribes a proper diagnostic procedure in addressing pathological conditions in the human body. Computational fluid dynamics coupled with other multiphysics relating structure and chemical reaction will be adopted to model this fluid-structural interaction within the biological context. This study intends to use Comsol Multiphysics modeling platform because of its robustness and the ability to coupled fluid-solid interaction with module for transport for concentrated species and reacting flow in normal duct and porous media.
