54
**Krogh Cylinder Model tissue capillary ignored**

A simplified model of oxygen transport from capillary to tissue Named after August Krogh ( , 1920 Nobel Lauriat; pronounced “Krawg”) Tissue modeled as cylinders around parallel capillaries (axisymmetric) tissue capillary ignored

55
**Krogh Cylinder Assumptions**

Radial diffusion in the tissue is the dominant mass transfer resistance Mass transfer in blood and plasma is ignored Axial diffusion ignored Improve by modeling plasma layer at vessel wall Oxygen carrier kinetics are instantaneous Plasma oxygen at equilibrium with oxygen carriers Steady state

56
**Krogh Cylinder Equations, 1**

Radial Diffusion in tissue: PDE BC’s Solution Maximum oxygenated radius: r R0 RV L z vz

57

Nondimensional Form: Solution Example, R* = 0.20

59
**Krogh Cylinder Equations, 3**

Critical Radius vs. Reaction Rate: Relate reaction rate to critical radius:

60
**Dimensionless Reaction Rate**

What is the meaning of F? Dimensionless reaction rate ... Estimate rate of oxygen uptake in an R0 x L cylinder Estimate rate of oxygen diffusion through an R0 x L cylinder F = Uptake Rate Transport Rate Low F is slow uptake, allowing deeper O2 diffusion High F is fast uptake, reduced radius for cylinder

61
**Krogh Cylinder Equations, 4**

Axial convection: Balance oxygen flow in medium/blood with uptake in tissue Assume C>0 in tissue, average medium velocity vz Inflow: Outflow: Tissue uptake: R0 Mass Balance: RV vz z dz

62
**Krogh Cylinder Application**

Apply to hepatocyte TE example: Uptake rate Inflow oxygen in medium: CB0 = 190 mM Want 1 cm thick tissue with 10 um diameter capillaries What flow velocity vz and channel spacing would work? Derive R0max vs. vz based on CBT(L) > 0 r R0 Rc L z vz

63
**Krogh Cylinder Application**

E.g. to get 200 mm vessel spacing requires about 1 m/s flow speed!

64
**Krogh Cylinder Application**

Check shear stresses and pressure drop required (assuming fully-developed flow): These are very high shear stresses! Want t<2Pa (R0 < 20 mm) Need shorter vessels or augmented transport

65
**Oxygen Carriers Water and cell culture media have low O2 capacity**

References Truskey, Yuan, and Katz. Transport Phenomena in Biological Systems. 2nd Ed., (Sections 13.2 – 13.3) RL Fournier. Basic Transport Phenomena in Biomedical Engineering. 2nd ed, (Secitions 6.2 to 6.5, 6.12) M Radisic et al, Mathematical model of oxygen distribution in engineered cardiac tissue ...” Am J Physiol Heart Circ Physiol 288: H1278-H1289, 2005. Water and cell culture media have low O2 capacity Blood has hemoglobin in red blood cells to store and release O2 Artificial O2 carriers have also been developed as an alternative to blood transfusion Perfluorocarbons (PFCs) Stabilized hemoglobins

66
**Hemoglobin-Oxygen Binding**

At saturation each Hb binds 4 O2 molecules % saturation vs. O2 partial pressure is nonlinear

67
**RBCs Increase O2 capacity**

Total blood oxygen concentration: Oxygen content at 100 mmHg and 45% Hct is about 70x higher than in plasma or media

68
**Our TE Application, with RBCs**

Assume Hct = 40%, pO2 = 140 mmHg Oxygen in inflow plasma is still: C = 190 mM Inflow total oxygen concentration is CBT = 8200 mM Rederive CT equation with nonlinear saturation curve? r R0 Rc L z vz

69
Krogh Cylinder, Blood E.g. to get 200 mm vessel spacing requires about 2 cm/s flow speed

70
**Krogh Cylinder Application**

Check shear stresses required (assuming fully-developed flow, viscosity ~ kg/m-s): These are still rather high shear stresses Want t<2Pa Spacing ~ 50 mm looks feasible

71
**Krogh Cylinder Application**

Check pressure required (assuming fully-developed flow, viscosity ~ kg/m-s): These are low pressures (less than 1 cm H2O for spacing less than 100 mm)

72
**Reflection How do RBCs increase blood’s oxygen-carrying capacity?**

Mechanism Quantitative effect How do RBCs effect vessel spacing, shear stress, and pressure requirements? What are the difficulties of using blood to culture tissue?

73
**Perfluorocarbons (PFCs)**

Synthetic oxygen carriers Not currently FDA approved for human use (Fluosol-DA-20 was approved 1989 but withdrawn 1994) Several in clinical trials High oxygen solubility: Henry constant HPFC = 0.04 mmHg/mM Example (in clinical trials): Oxygent Emulsion of 32% PFC

74
**Perfluorocarbons (PFCs)**

Linear increase in O2 with %PFC and pO2

75
**Perfluorocarbons (PFCs)**

PFCs don’t match RBC performance except at supraphysiologic oxygen pressures

76
**Our TE Application, with PFCs**

Assume 12.8% PFC (40% Oxygent), pO2 = 160 mmHg Oxygen concentration with PFCs: Inflow CBT = 700 mM r R0 RV L z vz

77
Krogh Cylinder, 12.8% PFC E.g. to get 200 mm vessel spacing requires about 25 cm/s flow speed

78
Krogh Cylinder, PFCs Check shear stresses required (assuming fully-developed flow, viscosity ~ kg/m-s): Spacing ~ 30 mm looks feasible Need to confirm viscosity ...

79
Krogh Cylinder, PFCs Check pressure required (assuming fully-developed flow, viscosity ~ kg/m-s): These are still fairly low pressures

81
**Summary of Problem so far**

Perfusing liver TE construct is difficult: High cell demand x high cell density Large volume (order 1 ml) Diffusion transport too slow Culture medium has low oxygen density Vascular channels and oxygen carriers improve transport

82
**Summary of Problem so far**

Part of our problem was high shear stress at required flow rates What if we made wider channels, eg 100 mm radius?

83
**Summary of Problem so far**

Larger channels: larger surface area, but more MT resistance in vessel Break O2 flow in to steps Vessel: Convection MT Tissue: Diffusion MT Tissue: Uptake Reaction Uptake reaction diffusion Cw O2 convection Cm

84
**O2 Flow Steps Convection MT radial flux Diffusion MT radial flux**

coefficient Convection MT radial flux Diffusion MT radial flux Uptake reaction Uptake Co diffusion Cw O2 convection Cm

85
**Nondimensional Parameters**

Simplify the problem where possible Use nondimensional parameters to compare steps, eliminate steps that don’t control O2 delivery Biot #: convection vs. diffusion MT Damkohler #: transport vs. reaction rate Other parameters simplify math Peclet #: axial vs. radial diffusion Sherwood #: convection coefficient Reynolds #: flow regime Graetz #: convection regime

86
**Mass transport wider channels**

Mass transport in flow (eg cylindrical coordinates) Biot number: Bi gives relative importance of convection Bi >> 1, fast convection can be ignored Bi ~ 1, convection slows transport Bi << 1, fast conduction can be ignored

87
In Our Example Use lower limit (fully developed MT) convection coefficient, km = DV /R V Assume DV ~ De E.g. medium, RV = 10 mm, R0 = 20 mm, Bi = 2. Convection plays a significant role. E.g. with RBCs, 45% HCT, RV = 10 mm, R0 = 50 mm, Bi = 8. Convection is negligible.

88
**Mass transport in wider channels**

Mass transport in flow (eg cylindrical coordinates) Graetz number: Small when Pe >>1 r R0 D = 2RV z vz L

89
**Mass transport wider channels**

Gz characterizes mass transport regime High Gz (Gz > 20) Axial flow faster than radial diffusion Not all O2 in vessels can reach wall (tissue) Mass transport boundary layer forms Higher convection coefficient Low Gz (Gz < 20) Concentration profiles similar shape “Fully-developed” mass transport Lower, constant convection coefficient

90
**In Our Example Constant D, others parameters variable**

Consider L = 1cm, vz= 1cm/s Gz < 20: Model larger vessel diameters or faster velocities with entrance flow model Or use numerical solver (eg Comsol was used in Radisic et al reference)

91
**Convection Mass Transport**

We’ll see three regimes: Entry region (boundary layer MT) (Gz > 20) Fully-developed MT (Gz < 20) Negligible convective MT resistance (Da << 1) Analysis assumes Dilute species Fully developed flow velocity profile Steady laminar flow and steady mass transport With dilute species, heat transfer and mass transfer are analogous (same math)

92
**Convection MT Equations**

L Vessel Length RV Vessel radius D Tube Diameter, D = 2RV R0 Tissue outer radius (1/2 vessel spacing) vz Average axial velocity (flow/XC area) u local axial velocity, u(r) DV Vessel effective diffusivity De Tissue effective diffusivity km Convection coefficient, mass transfer RO2 Tissue oxygen uptake rate m Vessel (Effective) Viscosity r Vessel mass density C Plasma/medium Oxygen concentration Jr Flux of oxygen, in radial direction Definitions r R0 r RV RV z L vz z vz u

93
**Fully Developed Laminar Flow, 1**

Steady flow Driven by pressure difference, pi-po Laminar flow Re = Reynolds # Newtonian fluid Constant m Fully Developed r L RV pi po z vz u

94
**Fully Developed Laminar Flow, 2**

Flow profile is parabolic: Shear stress at the vessel wall: Pressure drop over vessel length: r RV z vz u

95
**Convection MT in FD flow**

Assumptions Steady mass transport Fast release of O2 from carriers Constant O2 uptake rate RO2 Constant flux of O2 at vessel wall ie no hypoxic zones In vessel

96
**Convection MT in FD flow**

Constant flux wall boundary condition Assume negligible axial diffusion Boundary condition: Oxygen flux at vessel wall balances oxygen uptake in tissue

97
**Convection MT in FD flow**

Define mean concentration in the vessel Define local convection mass transfer coefficient, km Oxygen flux at the vessel wall:

98
**Convection MT in FD flow**

We solve the convection MT equation with constant-flux boundary condition to get an equation for the Sherwood number, Sh Use Sh to relate concentration difference to MT rate at wall For Fully-developed MT (Gz < 20), Sh = 4.364

99
**Coupling FD convective MT to diffusion in tissue cylinder**

Use Sh to relate concentration difference to MT rate at wall Use Krogh cylinder solution for tissue MT rate at wall r R0 C(r) RV CW Cm z vz L

100
**Coupling FD convective MT to diffusion in tissue cylinder**

Tissue uptake, balanced to convection MT rate, sets wall concentration “defect” r R0 C(r) RV Caw Cm z vz L

101
**When is FD convective MT important?**

When defect is same magnitude as inlet concentration Ignore convective MT when r R0 C(r) RV Cw Cm z vz L

102
Damkohler Number The Damkohler #, Da, is a dimensionless parameter comparing reaction rate to transport rate For FD MT coupled to zero-order oxygen consumption, define You can ignore mass transport effects when Da << 1

103
**Reflection: what does this mean?**

Da just depends on vessel spacing (tissue radius), diffusivity, uptake rate and inlet (total) blood oxygen concentration Why ignore MT when MT rate is high? Because MT resistance matters ... The slow rate controls the overall rate

104
**Developing Mass Transport**

Now consider faster flow, Gz < 20 “Developing” concentration profile changes with axial location z Faster mass transport (higher Sherwood #) Reference: Convective Heat and Mass Transfer, Kays WM and Crawford ME, 2nd Ed., 1980, McGraw Hill, Ch. 8, pp Define dimensionless axial position,

105
**Developing Mass Transport**

Numerical Solution, Sh(z+) Sh ~ when z+ > 0.1

106
**Developing Mass Transport**

Recall concentration “defect”, which increases with decreasing Sh: Longer vessels have lower Sh, lower C at wall Critical calculation is Cw at end of vessel Note z+(L)= 2/Gz

107
**Including Oxygen Carriers in Convective MT problem**

Oxygen carriers complicate analysis But they improve oxygen delivery! Refs: M Radisic et al, Mathematical model of oxygen distribution in engineered cardiac tissue ...” Am J Physiol Heart Circ Physiol 288: H1278-H1289, 2005. WM Deen, Analysis of Transport Phenomena, 1998, Oxford University Press, pp

108
**Convection with O2 Carriers**

More definitions f Carrier volume fraction or hematocrit S Hemoglobin saturation (fraction) Ca Aqueous phase Oxygen concentration Cc Carrier oxygen concentration CT Total Oxygen concentration (Ca + Cc) K Carrier phase partition coefficient (Cc / Ca) R0 Tissue outer radius (1/2 vessel spacing) vz Average axial velocity (flow/XC area) u local axial velocity, u(r) Da Aqueous phase diffusivity Dc Carrier phase diffusivity DVe Effective diffusivity in vessel (relative to Ca)

109
**Convection with O2 Carriers**

O2 carrier increases Total oxygen concentration in the vessel Effective diffusivity in the vessel Assume carrier and aqueous phase concentrations are in equilibrium at all times Choose aqueous phase concentration as independent variable Caw = Ctissue at the vessel wall Write mass conservation in terms of Ca

110
**Convection with O2 Carriers**

Total Concentration: PFC suspension: K = Haqueous/HPFC = 20.1 Da = 2.4 x 10-5 cm2/s Dc = 5.6 x 10-5 cm2/s Mass conservation in vessel, FD flow:

111
**Convection with O2 Carriers**

f is approximately constant (except within skimming layer ~ 1 mm) For PFCs K and g are constant Boundary condition

112
Exercise Derive conservation equation for mean flow aqueous oxygen concentration Use earlier approach: balance mean oxygen flow reduction with tissue oxygen consumption

113
**Convection with O2 Carriers**

Mean aqueous oxygen concentration conservation equation Recall axial convection balance result from Krogh cylinder, Substitute for aqueous concentration

114
**FD Convection with PFCs**

Let’s look back at Fully-Developed convective mass transport. What’s different with PFC vs. culture medium? Effective diffusivity is different Slope of Cm vs. z is reduced

115
**What about our practical problem?**

Shortening vessels would help Biomimetic approach: Use a branched network Carry over Cm from parent vessel outlet to daughter vessel inlets Example: Patrick’s branched structure L ~ 4mm, D ~ 1mm, RV ~ 500 mm, R0 ~ 1500 mm rcells ~ 0.3 x 108 cells/ml
