    Abstract A computational framework for simulating growth and transport in biological materials based on continuum models is proposed. The advantages of the finite difference methodology employed are generality and relative simplicity of implementation. The Cartesian mesh/level set method developed here provides a computational tool for the investigation of a host of transport-based tissue/tumor growth models, that are posed as free or moving boundary problems and may exhibit complicated boundary evolution including topological changes. The methodology is tested here on a widely studied "incompressible flow" type tumor growth model with a numerical implementation in two dimensions; comparisons More >
