This study explores the analysis of a new stent geometry from two typical stents used to treat the coronary artery disease. Two different finite element methods are applied with different boundary conditions to investigate the stenosis region. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models including fluid–structure interaction are used to assess the haemodynamic… (More)
This research provides useful insights for better diagnosis and understanding the vein blockage induced by a deep venous thrombosis and the occurrence of reverse flow in human veins, allowing a proper detection of serious diseases related to deep venous insufficiency. An arbitrary Lagrangian–Eulerian formulation is used in a coupled model (i.e. fluid and… (More)
The increasingly demand for biofuels in next decades places the second-generation (lignocellulosic) ethanol obtained from the converting process of biomass as an advanced fuel. In fact, the competitiveness to obtaining new sources of bioenergy could place the producers in an advantage position, because many capabilities that are used to producing… (More)
