Project: Biological Systems

Predictive models of the human body can be used in a variety of applications including design and fabrication of artifical organs and drug design. Work is in progress to develop integrated multiscale models of the cardiovascular system and the vestibular system to serve these areas.

The cardiovascular model is based on (a) 3D FSI multiscale model of the heart, (b) 1D FSI models for the main arteries, and (c) 0D (Lumped) models for the rest of cardiovascular system. The vestibular model is based on (a) 3D FSI models for the three semicircular canals (SCC) and the two otolith organs (OO), (b) Lumped models for the 3 SCCs.
