Seminars for All
On - Wednesday 15th April 2015, 1:15-17:00pm
Venue: Lecture Theatre, School of Optometry & Vision Sciences, Maindy Road, Cardiff University, CF24 4LU
We look forward to welcoming our invited speakers at this half day workshop on biomechanics and bioengineering.
External speakers: Professor Philippe Young, School of Engineering, University of Exeter, MD of Simpleware will be speaking on
"Image based modelling: new tools for biomechanics and bioengineering research"
Abstract: Image-based meshing is an effective tool for converting 3D image data such as MRI and CT into simulation-ready finite element and computational fluid dynamics models. This presentation will focus on the latest advances in image-based model generation, as well as the opportunities available to use these techniques within pre-clinical decision support systems, for 3D printing and for bio-material characterisation. Real-life applications will be presented for different applications in biomechanical modelling which will demonstrate the potential of the proposed approach for a wide range of applications, and illustrate the ability to simulate complex anatomical problems with a high degree of accuracy.
