Simulation of the spiral vortex which causes cell deformation at cross-junction and T-junction

11 Mar 2020

The scientists ran simulations of the spiral vortex to characterize its dynamics. They also captured videos of how the cells were deformed by the spiral vortex in the center of the cross-junction and by collisions with the end wall at the T-junction.
