A phase-field method applied to interface tracking for blood clot formation. (English) Zbl 07250671
Summary: The high shear rate thrombus formation was only recently recognized as another way of thrombosis. Models proposed in [F. F. Weller, Modeling, analysis, and simulation of thrombosis and hemostasis. Heidelberg: Univ. Heidelberg, Naturwissenschaftlich-Mathematische Gesamtfakultät (Diss.) (2008; Zbl 1304.92036); J. Math. Biol. 61, No. 6, 805–818 (2010; Zbl 1205.92010)] take into account this type of thrombosis. This work uses the phase-field method to model these evolving interface problems. A loosely coupled iterative procedure is introduced to solve the coupled system of equations. Convergence behavior on two levels of refinement of perfusion chamber geometry and cylinder geometry is then studied. The perfusion chamber simulations show good agreement with the original results of Weller. The code is implemented in FEM-library deal.ii [G. Alzetta et al., J. Numer. Math. 26, No. 4, 173–183 (2018; Zbl 1410.65363)], which enables distribution of computations to large number of processing units. A scalability and numerical performance study of the loosely coupled iterative procedure is performed, combined with several preconditioners for the linear subproblems.
