Blood vessels

Understanding the blood flow dynamics (hemodynamics) and the fluid forces exerted on the blood by implantable medical devices and predicting blood damage is an intricate part of interventional medical device design. This white paper aims to assess the performance of Abaqus/CFD in modeling hemodynamics using the FDA Benchmark Nozzle model.
