Medicine's Fluid Dynamics

Application In Medicine's Fluid Dynamics Desktop Engineering chronicles the rise of CFD in the biomedical field. CFD has found application in human physiology research into circulatory and respiratory systems, pharmaceutical delivery, and in design of medical equipment.
Chris Reid, vice president and general manager of the fluids business unit for ANSYS, reports growing use of CFX for heart, circulatory, and respiratory system product development—such items as stents, blood pumps, and inhalers. "Blood flow itself is a multiphase flow problem," Reid says. "Modeling this has become easier with today’s software. We can model multiphase, nonlinear behavior in arterial walls with software for fluid-structural interaction (FSI). An important application area for FSI is medicine delivery in the respiratory tract. Designs for asthmatics require modeling the whole respiratory system."
