Title: Vascular reconstruction modelling of lumen- Adapted arteries with stiffened grafts
Issue Date: 2013
Abstract: Optimization of prosthetic graft configuration with regard to blood dynamics is the major target of this research. Hemodynamic simulations of idealized arterial bypass systems are acquired using a finite element arterial blood simulator exhibiting hemodynamic flow changes due to compliance differences of a stiff graft and an elastic arterial wall. An artificial neural network simulating hemodynamic specific conditions is developed in order to reduce computational time. Optimal graft configurations are searched using a multi-objective genetic algorithm. An optimal set of solutions are presented and analyzed.
