Title:Fluid-Structure Interaction in Blood Flow
Seminar:Computational and Applied Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:Suncica Canic (U. of Houston)
Abstract:
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. Collaborators: Dr. Z. Krajcer and Dr. D. Rosenstrauch (Texas Heart Institute), Dr. C. Hartley (Baylor College of Medicine), Prof. R. Glowinski, Prof. T.W. Pan, Prof. G. Guidoboni (University of Houston), Prof. A. Mikelic (University of Lyon 1, FR), Prof. J. Tambaca (University of Zagreb, CRO)
