Abstract:

The aim of the project is to apply new or recently developed computer graphic techniques to a particular discipline with the thought of broadening its research capabilities. The discipline chosen, that of medicine, has emphasis placed upon the area of hemodynamics. Projects chosen for contemplation were the design of optimized flow prosthetic heart valves and the study of vascular degeneration and replacement. A developed mock circulation is to be employed concurrently for furnishing verification of the theoretical results.
