Title:
Two-dimensional of fluid-structure interaction using lattice-Boltzmann methods 
Abstract:
The development of flow instabilities due to high Reynolds number flow in artificial heart-value geometries inducing high strain rates and stresses often leads to hemolysis and related highly undesired effects. Geometric and functional optimization of artificial heart valves is therefore mandatory. In addition to experimental work in this field it is meanwhile possible to obtain increasing insight into flow dynamics by computer simulation of refined model problems. Here we present two-dimensiona...    »
