Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have received an award of nearly $385,000 from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for their project to develop new and improved simulation tools for modeling physical problems relating to the interaction of fluids and solids, called fluid-structure interaction (FSI) problems. Blood flowing in veins/arteries can be posed as an FSI problem, and issues such as aneurysms can be simulated mathematically. ...read more
