 Monmouth University, West Long Branch, NJ, USA
Three dimensional mathematical models are developed to simulate the blood flows in patient specific right coronary arteries with two stenoses. Simulations are carried out with various flow parameters under physiological conditions. Both Newtonian and non-Newtonian blood viscosity models are applied in the simulations to examine the influence of non-Newtonian viscosity of blood on the wall ...

Brain edema is one of the most common consequences of serious traumatic brain injuries which is usually accompanied with increased Intracranial Pressure (ICP) due to water content increment. A three dimensional finite element model of brain edema is used to study intracranial pressure in this paper. Three different boundary conditions at the end of Cerebral Spinal Fluid (CSF) were used to ...

The design challenge for thermostimulation equipment is to get a combination of high electric field strength and high temperature within the muscle tissue without causing pain or skin burns. In the present work, COMSOL Multiphysics is used to simulate the temperature distribution and electric field distribution within body tissue for varying body composition and varying design parameters of the ...

To better quantify the impact of the morphological and mechanical properties of the main constituents of the stratum corneum (SC, the outermost layer of the skin) on its overall mechanical behavior, we developed a biomechanical model of the SC at a cellular scale, based on in vitro morphological and mechanical data. The sensitivity analysis quantified the relative impact of the mechanical and ...

INTRODUCTION: Researchers in the biomedical field have recently become interested in the potential applications of plasomics. Surface plasmon resonance based on optical properties of metallic nanostructures can be used for detection of special biological targets. Gold nanostructures with different shapes and sizes have been designed to achieve high enhancement factor (EF), wide range of ...

Necrosis of human tissue can typically be obtained by exposure to temperatures below 40°C or above +50°C. However, inherent variability in tissue properties, the complexity of tissue response and dissipation of thermal energy by local perfusion or blood flow can make the development of routine, predictable in-vivo approaches to produce necrosis difficult. Although a number of thermal ablation ...

Tissue engineering (TE) is a multidisciplinary field involving principles of engineering and life sciences to improve the health and quality of life by repairing, restoring, maintaining, or enhancing tissue and organ function using cells, scaffolds, and growth factors alone or in combination. There are several artificial tissues that are already being used which include fabricated skin, ...

Drop test simulation is one of the important tool used for the impact behaviour study of electronic components. It identifies the flaws in design. The reliability and performance of electronic consoles after the drop is a major concern. Devices are expected to continue functioning after suffering a drop. The model is allowed to fall freely due to gravity load application. Drop test standard ...
A Multiphysics Model of O2 Transport and Recirculation During Venovenous Extracorporeal Life Support

 Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, Shreveport, LA, USA
Venovenous extracorporeal life support (VV-ECLS) provides gas exchange support for severe lung failure by using an extracorporeal circuit consisting of a blood pump and an artificial membrane lung. Blood is withdrawn from a cannula placed into the inferior vena cava, and returned from the circuit into the superior vena cava, adding oxygen to and removing carbon dioxide from the venous blood. ...
