Isogeometric fluid-structure interaction analysis with applications to arterial blood flow. (English) Zbl 1161.74020
Summary: We develop a NURBS (non-uniform rational B-splines)-based isogeometric fluid-structure interaction formulation, coupling incompressible fluids with nonlinear elastic solids, and allowing for large structural displacements. This methodology, encompassing a very general class of applications, is applied to problems of arterial blood flow modeling and simulation. In addition, a set of procedures enabling the construction of analysis-suitable NURBS geometries is outlined directly from patient-specific imaging data. The approach is compared with representative benchmark problems, yielding very good results. Computation of a patient-specific abdominal aorta is also performed, giving qualitative agreement with computations by other researchers using similar models.
