OpenFOAM in the cloud for biomed applications
Dear OpenFOAM user,

If you are active in the biomedical field you probably will be interested in VIRTUS, a cloud-based system that integrates all CFD processes into a single system to enable radiologists and physicians to perform patient-based blood flow simulations easily accessed via a web-browser. Thanks to GPU the simulations are up to x3 times faster now than on Intel Xeon running at full speed.

- Automated mesh generation directly from CT/MRI image
- OpenFOAM backend
- GPU-based acceleration

See for example videos and screencasts.

Kind regards,
Lukasz Miroslaw

Great work. Congratulation. I was discussing a similar project a couple of years ago, but did not get any funding for it. It should be a very promising field.

Your software also looks great!
what kind of solvers and turbulence modeling do you use?

We are accelerating now kOmegaSST on GPU. Would that be interesting for your application?

I am using kOmegaSST, but do not have GPU acceleration. I would definitively be interested in GPU acceleration (anything to get a faster turn-around time), but I am currently working on the marketing side to turn it into a commercially viable product. I will contact you when I reach the point where I can confidently say that the demand is there.
