Complex fluids 

Complex fluids are everywhere, examples include blood, shampoo, surfactant, ...
The coupling of different scales and physical processes is important in the study of complex fluids. Indeed, the interaction between these (microscopic) elastic properties and the (macroscopic) fluid motions gives not only the rich and complicated rheological phenomena, but also presents formidable challenges in mathematical analysis and numerical simulations. We have undergone systematic development of closure models for the macromicro FENE models of polymeric fluids. Our approach is featured as an important and effective offline approach for multiscale modeling. We will be looking into various dynamic and adaptive closure approaches and their numerical implementations.
