IS15 - Multiscale and coupled problems in bioengineering
Organizers of the Invited Session (IS) entitled “Coupled and Multiscale Computational
Problems in Bioengineering” seek contributions from researchers engaged in
computational aspects of bioengineering problems the involve modelling of coupled and
multiscale problems. Topics of interest may include computational models involving
multi-physics, coupling of 3D and lumped (0D) models in hemodynamics and
biomechanics as well as modelling across macro/micro/nano length scales and time
scales. Submission presenting novel algorithms and computational methodologies in
finite volume, finite elements, meshless methods, and boundary elements are encouraged.
Examples include applications in surgical treatment planning and assessment in heart
disease [1,2], coupled modelling of cardiac mechanics and electrophysiology , and
modelling at the molecular and organ levels .
