Mechanisms Underlying the Progression of Large Artery Stiffness in Hypertension London, United Kingdom (2010 - 2014)
The goal of this project is to develop an experimentally based computational model of blood flow within the central arteries and to understand the effects of regional arterial wall stiffening on systemic hemodynamics.
Biomechanical Simulation of Evolving Aortic Aneurysms for Designing Intervention Graz, Austria (2010 - 2014)
The goal of this project is to develop a computational model of an evolving abdominal aortic aneurysm and to use the model to understand better the mechanobiological factors that lead to lesion enlargement versus rupture.
Biochemomechanics of Intraluminal Thrombus in Aortic Aneurysms Zagreb, Croatia (2010 - 2014)
The goal of this project is to develop a computational model of an evolving intraluminal thrombus and to study its effects on the stability of abdominal aortic aneurysms.
