Project Description

Fluid dynamic wall shear stress is an important mechanical factor in vascular physiology, however measuring this quantity on microscopic scales is very challenging. This project will develop theoretical and computational techniques based on the method of regularised stokeslets and Brownian motion modelling; these techniques will be used to support work by experimental collaborators in Birmingham, Nottingham and Warwick who have developed a prototype flow sensing virus-based nanofibre using synthetic biology techniques. The end point of the project will be a computational tool to quantify the wall shear stress from high frame-rate imaging data.
