The MeDiTATe project was present at the International Conference on Computational Methods for Coupled Problems in Science and Engineering (COUPLED PROBLEMS 2023).  The event took place on 5-7 June 2023 in Chania (Crete Island, Greece).

In this occasion Bhargav Krishna Chitneedi (ESR04) presented the results of its activities with the oral talk “Hemodynamic evaluation of aortic aneurysms using FSI simulations”. A short abstract of the work is as follows:

Understanding the dynamics of aortic blood flow plays a vital role for the assessment of cardiovascular health for identifying potential risk factors for diseases like aneurysm, thrombosis etc. Fluid structure interaction (FSI) can be used to study the aortic blood flow and how this is affected by the mechanical properties of the aortic wall, such as its stiffness and compliance. The results of FSI simulations can provide insight into the factors that contribute to aortic blood flow patterns and predict failures which might be the reason for cardiovascular diseases.
