BSC and NVIDIA Showcase Interactive Simulation of Human Body

This week at the GPU Technology Conference, Nvidia and Barcelona Supercomputing Center demonstrated an interactive visualization of a cardiac computational model that shows the potential of HPC-based simulation codes and GPU-accelerated clusters to simulate the human cardiovascular system. “This demonstration brings together Alya simulation code and NVIDIA IndeX scalable software to implement an in-situ visualization solution for of electro mechanical simulations of the BSC cardiac computational model. While Alya simulates the electromechanical cardiac propagation, NVIDIA IndeX is used for an immediate in-situ visualization. The in-situ visualization allows researchers to interact with the data on the fly giving a better insight into the simulations.”
