For many years, there has been a strong intra Ghent University collaboration between the IBiTech-bioMMeda research group, focusing on the application of fluid and structural mechanics for biomedical problems, and the department of Flow, Heat and Combustion Mechanics with a strong background in developing algorithms for numerical fluid mechanics and fluid-structure interaction (FSI) problems. This collaboration joins the strengths of both groups, with ongoing applications in FSI simulations of heart valves, aortic coarctation, aortic aneurysms etc., thereby integrating in vivo (human and (small) animal) hydraulic bench and numerical research.
