Supercomputer Simulates Whole-Body Blood Flow

February 17, 2016

The software uses a 3D representation of every artery that is 1mm across or wider, scanned from a single person. Its accuracy passed a first key test when physicists compared blood flow in the virtual aorta with the that of real fluid in a 3D-printed replica. Flow patterns seen in the physical copy were a good match for the simulation.
