Engineering applications involving biological fluids have highly transversal requirements in terms of domain definition from clinical images, complex flow conditions, fluid rheological properties, structure motion and deformation, visualization and post-processing of the results.
For these reasons, and thanks to the enormous developments of computational sciences, a computer-aided–engineering workflow seems to be a possible elective environment from which to perform hemodynamic studies and medical device design.
Today a large part of the technological requirements needed to tackle these problems in a computational environment are already available in open source and/or commercial software.
Nevertheless, success still strongly depends on technical knowledge and best practices or, in other words, ideas must be translated into stable and usable actions.
