WG 5 Research Seminar - Talk by Josip Tambaca
On April 21st, 2022, Josip Tambaca (University of Zagreb) will give a talk at 12.00 pm CEST about
"Mathematical modeling of stents as a network of elastic rods".
The talk will be held online in Zoom. The zoom URL will be sent to all members of the WG5 and to all further colleagues who send a mail to Jan Giesselmann.
Stent is a mesh-like and a tube-like structure inserted into vessels to hold them open and allow unrestricted blood flow. There are many available designs of stents which influence their overall mechanical properties.
In this talk we present a very efficient and reliable way of modeling of stents that also allows efficient solutions for optimal design problems. The underlying model for stents' struts that we use is based on the one-dimensional elastic curved rod model resulting in a problem on a graph which gives a stent model which is simple, but rich enough.
