I develop numerical methods for fluid-structure interaction simulations and contact problems

AV-Flow/ Fluid-Structure Simulations Of Heart Valves (PASC Projects)

The project AV-FLOW aims at developing a software library for the Life Science domain science network. AV-FLOW is a numerical library for the solution of fluid-structure interaction problems using hybrid meshes (structured for the fluid and unstructured for the soft tissue). More specifically, this project will address the simulation of the hemodynamics of aortic heart valves which is a hot topic in the field of cardiovascular engineering. Despite this focus on one particular application, the resulting numerical library will be widely applicable for more general problems of biomedical research. This library will be written and optimized for new and emerging supercomputing infrastructure with hybrid multi-core processors including accelerators such as GPUs. It responds directly to the need for efficient simulation tools for biomedical flow problems. For example, it will allow in-silico studies and testing of novel diagnostic and interventional methods in the fields of cardiology and cardiovascular surgery.
