Numerical simulation of two red blood cells (RBCs) with different aggregation strength

According to previous studies, most aggregates in blood flow consist of RBCs doublet-pairs therefore the understanding of doublet dynamics has scientific importance in describing hemodynamics. Hence, the numerical simulation of a doublet was conducted in a simple shear flow condition. To study the aggregation behavior of the doublet, we employed the aggregation model described by the Morse type potential function, which is based on depletion theory.
