Video interview: Special Report on Bioengineering

April 25, 2018

Dr. Nagi Elabbasi was interviewed by ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) and Mechanical Engineering magazine as part of a special report focused on the use of modeling and simulation in the field of bioengineering and biomedical devices. In this four-part series, Dr. Elabbasi discusses some exciting real world simulation applications using the software COMSOL Multiphysics and describes recent innovations and advances in simulation, for instance in the area of radio frequency tissue ablation. He addresses some of the challenges in using modeling and simulation for bioengineering, such as limitations on testing the human body as opposed to testing components for a car or a valve. 

The series concludes with a discussion of what the future holds for bioengineering. Dr. Elabbasi encourages analysts and engineers to try out simulation, noting that “It opens up a much bigger design space, which will eventually lead to better products, and novel products, because you’re not constrained by what works now.” Watch the interview.
