CFD-based design optimization for a pediatric implant can shave years off the development cycle.
As engineering and medicine converge, researchers are making gains in understanding and treating causes of cardiovascular disease.
The long-term prognosis for babies born with single-ventricle heart defects can depend on the location of vascular connections made during corrective surgery. Shanghai Children’s Medical Center uses simulation to individualize this surgery. Researchers employ computational fluid dynamics to determine the optimal connection points based on the patient’s cardiovascular anatomy, improving surgical effectiveness and resulting in a better quality of life for these children.
Simulations help to design a new low-enriched nuclear fuel for materials testing, isotope production and neutron radiography for research that reduces proliferation threat.
As bioanalytical microsystems and biosensor devices become increasingly miniaturized, Cornell researchers are learning to model mixing at an extremely small scale.
Pneumatic conveying systems in the pharmaceutical industry can lead to unwanted particle breakup.
