Title: Mathematical Modeling and Analysis for Fluid-Structure Interaction Applications to Aneurysms
In this talk, we will present analytical and computational models for understanding soft tissue mechanics,
fluid dynamics, and their interaction. Despite major advances in this area, there is still a need for more
sophisticated models which provide better insight into understanding the biomechanics of aneurysms.
Towards this end, this talk will present the development of a hyperelastic membrane model; a fully three-dimensional
elastic model; stability analysis of the governing equations derived for the membrane and elastic models; and
computational algorithms using the finite element method to substantiate the results from analytical models.
We will also discuss the influence of viscoelasticity and anisotropy on these proposed models.
