HemoCell’s User guide

When using HemoCell please cite the HemoCell paper [1].

HemoCell implements an immersed boundary method with a lattice Boltzmann method and langrangian structure points for the cells. The lattice Boltzmann method is implemented with the help of the palabos library (palabos.org). On top of that HemoCell manages the structures (material, cells) and the interactions between these and the fluid. The update of the forces of the mechanical model of a cell are highly optimized as is the interaction between the fluid and the mechanical model.
