The Modeling and Analysis group in the Division of Engineering at Mayo Clinic, Rochester works in the area of numerical modeling and experimental validation of cerebral aneurysms. In our modeling we use patient-specific geometries from imaging studies provided by Dr. Kallmes. The CFD analysis is performed with commercial packages Mimics (Materialise, Leuven, Belgium), for segmentation and ANSYS (ANSYS Inc. Canonsburg, PA) for meshing, simulation and post-processing. The experiments are conducted using a tomographic Particle Image Velocimetry system from LaVision Inc. The group is led by Dan Dragomir-Daescu, PhD and David F. Kallmes, MD and consists of two postdoctoral fellows and three engineers. For this project, CFD simulations were performed by postdoctoral fellow Simona Hodis, using the finite volume based solver Fluent.
