Analysis of fluid flow inside partially filled agitated petri dish

Alterations of flow dynamics and presence of disturbed secondary flows strongly correlate with arterial wall deceases such as atherosclerosis and aneurysm. Clinical observations and in vivo studies suggest that these disturbed flows damage the endothelial cells layer that protects the vascular fibroblasts from direct contact with the blood flow. A simple, easy to build device for studying disturbed flow is currently being designed at the Laboratory of Applied Mechanobiology at ETH Zurich Switzerland. The goal of the present project is to perform detailed numerical simulations of the complex flow in the device with the aim of optimizing its operation. The simulations require modeling of oscillatory, free surface flows including breaking waves under the influence of surface tension. The simulations will be performed using the commercial software STAR-CCM+.

Technical University of Denmark

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted – the father of electromagnetism – who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.


Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.
