Computational Fluid Dynamics of 3D Printed Tissue

Elysa S. Thompson1 1Department of Mechanical and Energy Engineering, Purdue School of Engineering and Technology, 46202 Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has the capability to simulate the environment required for biofabricated tissues. Analyzing the forces present on the tissues is essential for the correct development and growth after the scaffold-free biofabricated tissue is 3D printed. The advantage of scaffold-free engineered tissues is the lower rejection rate from the body during integration of the new tissue due to the lack of scaffold or supports needed to fabricate the tissue. The CFD model created by the lab analyzes net flow, pressure distribution, shear stress, and oxygen distribution. These flow characteristics are to be tested to find the flow parameters that best suit the bioreactor. With the use of software such as MATLAB and ANSYS, simulations are done to determine what design constructs are required and flow application is needed for future biofabrication of tissue.

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has the capability to simulate the environment required for
biofabricated tissues. Analyzing the forces present on the tissues is essential for the correct development
and growth after the scaffold-free biofabricated tissue is 3D printed. The advantage of scaffold-free
engineered tissues is the lower rejection rate from the body during integration of the new tissue due to the
lack of scaffold or supports needed to fabricate the tissue. The CFD model created by the lab analyzes net
flow, pressure distribution, shear stress, and oxygen distribution. These flow characteristics are to be
tested to find the flow parameters that best suit the bioreactor. With the use of software such as MATLAB
and ANSYS, simulations are done to determine what design constructs are required and flow application
is needed for future biofabrication of tissue.
