Project description

The AOG Biomechanics is doing experimental and computational research on (1) biofluid flows in the cardiovascular system, the pulmonary airways and artificial organs, (2) structural mechanics (musculoskeletal system or stent inflation in an artery) and (3) mechanical interaction between fluids and structures (e.g. heart valve dynamics). The research unit aims to optimize diagnostic methods and therapies, all for the benefit of human health.
