In what could serve as a research reference or a teaching resource, engineers introduce the fundamental concepts, mathematical formulation, alternative approaches, and predictions of the computational hydrodynamics of capsules and biological cells. The numerical methods they describe encompass a broad range of possible formulations for simulating the motion of rigid particles and the flow-induced deformation of liquid capsules and cells enclosed by viscoelastic membranes. In some cases, the same or similar problems are dealt with by different methods, and the repetition has been retained to provide a comparative dimension. Among the methods are a high-resolution fast boundary-integral method for multiple interacting blood cells, dissipative particle dynamics modeling of red blood cells, and the multi-scale modeling of transport and receptor-mediated adhesion of platelets in the bloodstream.
