Arterial Flow

Turbulent flow through aneurysm. Computational research focused on improving numerical methods to capture flow subtleties. The mesh was unstructured hexahedrals. Visualization highlighted turbulence and toroidal exit flow with videos of streamlines and particles moving through a volume rendered velocity field. Cross sectional slices warped by velocity further highlight flow irregularities.
