Description:

Objectives
Engineering applications involving biological fluids have 
highly transversal requirements in terms of domain 
definition, flow conditions, fluid rheological properties, 
structure motion, visualization and post-processing of the 
results. For these reasons, and thanks to the enormous 
developments of computational sciences, a computer aided 
engineering workflow seems to be a possible elective 
environment where to perform hemodynamics studies and 
medical device design. 
Today a large part of the technological requirements needed 
to tackle these problems in a computational environment are 
already available in open source and/or commercial software. 
Nevertheless, success still strongly depends on technical 
knowledge and practice. 
This four days course, focused on the technical aspects of 
this field of application and structured as an extended 
hands-on tutorial, is intended to walk the attendants 
through a complete analysis of a sample hemodynamic 
application, providing technical insights on each phase of 
the workflow. 
The main expected benefits for the course attendant are:
enlarge their knowledge on state of art methods and 
algorithms;
apply best practices on state-of-the-art software 
deployment;
experience technical tips-and-tricks throughout the 
different phases of the tutorial;
learn from case history and practical applications told by 
ANSYS experts.
The course will therefore facilitate and speed-up in silico 
healthcare research and Computational Fluid Dynamics driven 
medical device design.

Audience
The summer school is aimed to junior and senior engineers, 
scientists and PhD or postdoctoral students in the area of 
bio fluid mechanics.

Computational tools
The Vascular Modeling Toolkit (VMTK)is a collection of open-
source libraries and tools for 3D reconstruction, geometric 
analysis, mesh generation and surface data analysis for 
image-based modeling of blood vessels.
Ansys CFD Suite for fluid dynamics solutions is a 
comprehensive state-of-the-art commercial product suited for 
modeling fluid flow problems.
RBF Morph is a unique morpher, fully integrated with the 
Ansys CFD suite, that combines a very accurate control of 
the geometrical parameters with an extremely fast mesh 
deformation.
ParaView is an open-source, multi-platform data analysis and 
visualization application.

Registration
The registration fee is 500 Euro for academic participants 
and 
800 Euro for others.
The maximum number of participants is set to twenty.
The fee covers the participation to all the lectures and 
tutorials, a printed version of lecture notes and a digital 
version of the tutorial solutions. A trial license (one 
month) of Ansys products and RBF Morph will also be 
availables for participants.
Payment is required by June 10, 2011. After this date an 
extra fee of 150 Euro will be charged.
Participants are asked to make their own Hotel reservations.
Launch voucher is included.
