Running a pure fluid flowΒΆ

With HemoCell it is possible to run a pure fluid flow, without any cells present within the domain. This is technically the same as just running a fluid simulation with Palabos. The simplest way to remove all the cells is to set the number of cells in the CELL.pos files to zero (first line). Or to remove the addCellType and all subsequent functions that request that specific cell-type (such as setOutputs) from the case.cpp file.

However, this still leaves a small overhead as the function for the material model are still called (although little work is done inside them as there are no cells). This can be circumvented by replacing




within the case.cpp file
