Large eddy simulation of blood flow in a realistic model of the Circle of Willis

The dataset was produced using fully resolved Large Eddy Simulation (LES) and multiharmonic rheological flow models in a realistic in silico phantom of the CoW.  Researchers and biomedical engineers could utilize this dataset to fine-tune their CFD models and establish standard reference simulation(s) before carrying out further parametric studies. Having the dataset released under an open-access license encourages the community to further …

Scientists and sailors: may your compass be true

There is sufficient evidence, now, to revisit the principles of the vascular hemodynamics theory. Not only because of its illusive assumptions, but also because of its poor achievements. It is unable to help us understand endothelial cells mechanobiology and is not useful in characterizing disease nor in clinical perspectives.
