Computational Hemodynamics – Blood Stream Visualisation (2012)


Computational hemodynamics is the study of blood flows in the human body. The goal of the project was to create several 3D visuals showing how scientist envision to predict and prevent heart diseases by 3D fluid simulations of patient hearts. The simulations are based on research done by Prof. Efthimios Kaxiras, Dr. Simone Melchionna and teams at EPFL, Harvard University and National Research Council of Italy (CNR) in the scope of the Multiscale Hemodynamics Project.
Technology: The ScienceVisuals in-house ray tracing and simulation engine BioInspire, researched and developped by Dr. Pablo de Heras Ciechomski, was used to create models, animations, renderings and special effects. Music was specially composed for the movie. This was also done in 3D stereoscopic mode as requsted by the nVidia high performance computing outreach group.
