Coupling HumMod to ANSYS Fluent: A Tool for Advanced Patient-Specific Simulation - WebinarComputational fluid dynamics has long been a resource for understanding how geometry and physics influence bodily function. But CFD is only part of the equation. Human physiology is determined by biological and physical factors that influence, and are influenced by, the objects of CFD models; combining these two domains is critical for increased validity of simulations. Combining HumMod, a lumped parameter model of human physiology, with advanced 3-D CFD tools like ANSYS Fluent will enable researchers, clinicians and healthcare companies to better understand proposed physiological mechanisms and interactions, allowing higher level properties of complex physiological systems to emerge.
This webinar will illustrate unsteady breathing in Fluent with boundary conditions imported from HumMod as an example of the work in progress.
