Course Overview:

This SimCafe Structural Course was developed by Dr. Rajesh Bhaskaran at Cornell University in partnership with Ansys. It serves as an e-learning resource to integrate industry-standard simulation tools into courses and provides a resource for supplementary learning outside the classroom. The following course shows how to solve Cardiovascular Stent Simulation using Ansys Structural. Coronary Artery Disease kills nearly 1 in 4 Americans every year. Implantable stent treatments for arterial disease are constantly evolving with implantable stent innovations leading the way. Over 600,000 cardiovascular stents are implanted every year just in the United States alone. Stents may look relatively simple but are highly engineered lifesaving medical devices. It involves advanced material modeling, complex interaction with the arteries, and extremely high demand for accuracy. Apart from conducting experiments on stents, FEA is a tool that engineers and researchers use extensively to study and design stents. It has the ability to identify some mechanical characteristics of coronary artery stents that may not be easily obtained using traditional mechanical testing. We will go step by step to set up and run a Balloon-Expandable stent simulation.   

Learning Outcome:

Upon the completion of this course, you should be able to setup an FEA analysis for a coronary stent.

Eligibility Criteria:

Anyone with basic knowledge of Structural Mechanics
