Application At Rice University in Houston, Texas, members of the Team for Advanced Flow Simulation and Modeling (T*AFSM) are working with team members from other institutions to unlock mysteries of the circulatory system found within the human brain.

The group consists of researchers from Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science at Rice University, Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, and Bethel University in Minnesota. Their computational resources include the computer modeling methods and programs developed by the T*AFSM and a Cray XD1 supercomputer at Rice. The interdisciplinary team is using computational fluid mechanics and fluid-structure interaction to model cerebral arteries, with the goal of a better understanding—and ultimately, better diagnoses and prognoses—of cerebral aneurysms.
