We describe in this paper an open source framework for the solution of problems arising in hemodynamics. The proposed framework is validated through comparison against experimental data for fluid flow in an idealized medical device with rigid boundaries; and verified with a numerical benchmark for flow in compliant vessels. The core of the framework is an open source parallel finite element library that features algorithms to solve both fluid and fluid-structure interaction problems. The computed results are in good quantitative agreement with experimental measurements and theoretical estimates.
