Dr. Nagi Elabbasi and Dr. Matthew Hancock were invited to speak at COMSOL Day Boston, which took place on May 31, 2018, in Burlington, MA.
Dr. Elabbasi spoke about Multiphysics Simulation in Medical Devices and Bioengineering. He discussed modeling issues specific to medical devices, as well as the challenges related to multiphysics coupling and the accuracy of medical device simulations. Dr. Elabbasi showed several medical device simulations, including RF tissue ablation and heart valves.
Dr. Hancock spoke about Modeling and Simulation of Microfluidic Devices. He discussed how an array of modeling tools such as scaling arguments, analytical formulas, and COMSOL Multiphysics simulations may be leveraged to address microfluidic device development issues. Dr. Hancock also worked through some examples in detail, including modeling a microfluidic organ-on-a-chip device.
