Bhargav Krishna Chitneedi

Early Stage Researcher 04

My name is Bhargav Krishna Chitneedi and I am from India. I obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Aeronautical Engineering from JNTU Hyderabad, India. After which, I received Master’s degree in Computational Mechanics from Ecole Centrale de Nantes, France. Being curious to learn the how my knowledge can be applied to real world problems, I worked for a startup in Austria, ESS Gmbh, as a Junior Researcher. I worked on CFD simulations using meshless methods for engineering problems focusing on Automotive domain. Soon after, I developed interest in CFD methods for Biomedical applications from the projects of peers and later on applied for a Ph.D position within MeDiTATe project. This opportunity seems to be great platform to launch myself in the field of Biomechanics and working on such an interesting cross-domain project which has societal impact, drives the constant motivation.
As an ESR4 of MeDiTATe, I will be working for the first 18 months on academic focus at PCOpt lab, School of Mechanical Engineering, NTUA. I have been working on GPU enhanced CFD software called PUMA (inhouse CFD code of PCOpt, NTUA) for fast simulations of hemodynamics in aneurysmatic arteries. The enhancements necessary to perform the blood-flow simulations were implemented in PUMA. The CFD software is then coupled with structural software VPS (from ESI Group) and also opensource CalculiX, to run FSI simulations. The last 18 months will be on industrial focus at ESI Group, where I will be working on VPS tool with EWK rupture model of ESI group, to understand the origin and progression of aneurysm which might futher lead to rupture. Also, Model Order Reduction techniques will be used to reduce the computational cost of the simulations. The deep neural networks will be used to predict the failure points of arterial wall. During the first 18th months of the project, a one-month secondment is planned at Fondazione Toscana G. Monasterio (Italy).
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 859836
