Numerical simulations of surgically changed arteries

Numerical simulations of surgically changed arteries

In this program, computational structure/structure dynamics and model experiments will be integrated to study the structure dynamic responses, turbulence flows and local stresses with long-term goal of exploring clinic applications. There are more than 30,000 patients receiving artery related implants in Australia, incurring substantial cost for treating and nursing these patients. This project will put Australia at the forefront in the world in quantifying the coupled dynamics of non-Newtonian fluids in surgically altered arteries and understanding the underlying flow physics, with the potential to minimize the economic and personal costs by improving implant design, surgery planning and surgery outcome prediction.
