title = "Numerical modeling of the effect of field configurations on the magnetic nanoparticle delivery system",

abstract = "This paper presents the details of our studies on the numerical modeling of magnetic nanoparticle drug delivery using Ferrohydrodynamics based numerical models. The magnetic field and fluid flow were governed by Maxwell and the Navier-Stokes equations. A magnetic volume force couples the magnetic field to a fluid-flow problem in the blood-vessel domain described by the Navier-Stokes equations. The magnetic field generates magnetic volume forces that affect the flow field in the blood vessel. The fluid has the properties of blood (e.g. viscosity, flow rate and others) and magnetic characteristics of nanoparticles and hence becomes a ferrofluid. This helped in understanding the effect of variation of magnetic field distribution on the fluid velocity profiles. Two different field configurations, with symmetric and asymmetric pole fields, were considered and the fluid velocities in different gradient fields were compared. The results clearly showed that the fluid velocity decreased as the magnetic field increased.",
