Flow and nutrient transport problems in rotating bioreactor systems

Abstract:

Motivated by applications in tissue engineering, this thesis is concerned with the flow through and around a free-moving porous tissue construct (TC) within a high-aspect-ratio vessel (HARV) bioreactor. We formalise and extend various results for flow within a Hele-Shaw cell containing a porous obstacle. We also consider the impact of the flow on related nutrient transport problems.

The HARV bioreactor is a cylinder with circular cross-section which rotates about its axis at a const...
