Abstract

Recently, meshfree-based computational modelling approaches have become popular in modelling biological phenomena due to their superior ability to simulate large deformations, multiphase phenomena and complex physics compared to the conventional grid based methods. In this article,small plant cell aggregates were simulated using a three dimensional (3-D) Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) and Coarse-Grained (CG) coupled computational approach to predict the morphological behaviour during drying. The model predictions of these cell aggregate models have been compared qualitatively and quantitatively through comparisons with experimental findings.
