Video: Amazing Simulation of the Human Heart

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

In this video, a human heart is simulated by Alya Red, a project of the Barcelona Supercomputing Center for simulating a human heart.

The project is an integrative collaboration action with medical doctors, bioengineers and computational mechanics researchers coordinated by CASE department. The goal is to use HPC techniques to develop a Computational Cardiac Model, including electrophysiology, mechanical deformation and fluid mechanics. BSC coordinates, providing the main tool, Alya. BSC develops ad-hoc numerical models for fluids, solids, electrophysiology and coupling strategies.

A Tip of the Hat goes out to GPU Science for pointing us to this story.
