Abstract: In this paper, we demonstrate a new, rigorous, accurate and efficient model for simulating the flow of a suspension of deformable particles. The model uses a hybrid system: an Eulerian approach is used for the Navier-Stokes solver and a Lagrangian approach for the evolution of the DPs mesh. We demonstrate in this manuscript the capabilities of the model by simulating more than 130 deformable RBC in a tube of 60 × 30 × 30 m; the transverse migration of 20 vesicles at a low concentration (25% by volume) in a capillary tube of dimensions 150 × 40 × 40 m, in a matter of hours.
