Over the last years research in the field of biomechanical engineering has shown, that the requirements for numerical simulation of biological structures are pointing towards the fact that nature is irreducible.
Meaning that as much details as available should be incorporated in the simulation models to reproduce nature up to maximum detail.
As it is well known that with the level of detail the effort necessary to perform numerical simulation rises, the reserach at HLRS tries to establish methods to deal with biomechanical simulations on high performance computing platforms.
The research in our department currently focuses on three special areas of biomechanical engineering.
- The numerical simulation of blood flow
- The numerical simulation of bones and bone-implant-systems
- Micro Finite Element simulations of bone tissues
