To reduce the development time-line of stent grafts, this project focuses on software tools that will automate and simplify execution of Computational Fluid Design (CFD) simulations on a High Performance Computing (HPC) platform, as well as postprocessing CFD results. This program is a Java-based Graphical User Interface (GUI), which enables the end user to automatically calculate and visualize the CFD results. Its portability and design allow for ease of use across multiple workstations. A visual element is included to reconstruct simulation images into other video formats. In addition, Scripting languages, such as Perl and R, were used to indicate the appropriate allocation of resources within an HPC environment. Each simulation would receive the optimal assets for each test conducted, and potentially need less time to perform. The projected outcome is to allow the user to compute data and quickly produce results for predicting the flow mechanics and near-wall hemodynamics of endovascular stent grafts in the design process.
