Biomedical Engineering Simulation with COMSOL

Researchers and engineers use multiphysics simulation to gain a better understanding of the mechanisms at play in biomedical devices and applications. Simulation enables informed design decisions for improved product performance, prior to performing physical tests. This webinar will introduce the ways that COMSOL Multiphysics offers biomedical engineers insight into applications such as spine mechanics, patient-specific orthopedic implants, and the optimization of bioreactor performance.

The presentation will include a demonstration and conclude with a Q&A session.

Mark Yeoman
Continuum Blue

Mark Yeoman, founder of Continuum Blue, has a degree in engineering and a PhD in computational modeling and applied mathematics. His postgraduate work focused on the design and optimization of cardiovascular implants for Medtronic Inc. (USA), using finite element methods and genetic algorithms. With over 15 years of experience in the field of multiphysics modeling, he has worked in a wide variety of industrial sectors, including aerospace, chemical, biomedical, sustainable energy, and oil & gas. Apart from his industrial experience, he taught engineering students applied dynamics for several years before starting Continuum Blue. His most recent area of multiphysics research in the biomedical sector has focused on the fatigue analysis of a spinal implant which has recently been approved in Europe and granted a US Patent based on its novel material technology.
