Hi all,

I want to simulate inertial effects and the shear stress on the particles on the Red blood cells in the blood plasma in microchannle (curvilinear) . RBC (Density = 1050 kg^m-3, visc= .0015 pa s) Plasma (water properties). Can anyone tell me which phase i should use (disperesed solid, dispered liquid, particle transport solid/liquid or polydispered liquid). Water is continuous phase. I tried using particle transport solid but i cannot define inertial coeficient. I am bit confused about second phase. Please help me to get out of this problem.

Thank you.
