|Title:||Fluid-Structure Interaction in Blood Flow|
|Seminar:||Computational and Applied Mathematics Colloquium|
|Speaker:||Suncica Canic (U. of Houston)|
|The focus of this talk will be on the analysis and computation of fluid-structure interaction in blood flow.
Understanding solutions to moving-boundary problems
describing fluid-structure interaction between
blood flow and arterial walls is important in understanding
the mechanisms leading to various complications in cardiovascular function. Although fascinating progress has been made
in some areas of modeling and simulation of the human cardiovascular system many of the basic difficulties
remain open and will continue to present major challenges
in the years to come.
The speaker will give an overview of the main problems
and difficulties associated with the study of fluid-structure interaction in blood flow. Recent results in the analysis of solutions to
the benchmark problem in blood flow will be presented and recent
developments in the numerical algorithm design will be mentioned.
Applications involving certain cardiovascular interventions will be shown.
