Abstract: Mesoscale hydrodynamics simulations of red blood cells under flow have provided much new insight into their shapes and dynamics in microchannel flow. The presented results range from the behavior of single cells in confinement and the shape changes in sedimentation, to the clustering and arrangement of many cells in microchannels and the viscosity of red blood cell suspensions under shear flow. The interaction of red blood cells with other particles and cells, such as white blood cells, platelets, and drug carriers, shows an essential role of red blood cells in the margination of other blood components.
