A dimensionally heterogeneous coupled cardiac-vascular model.

Abstract: This work introduces an HPC-optimized cardiovascular coupled model. Two previously developed models were coupled by a black-box decomposition approach: on one hand, Alya, which is a fluid- electro-mechanical tridimensional cardiac model and on the other hand ADAN, which is a one- dimensional vascular arterial model. In this paper we present some preliminary results for simple geometries: an elipsoidal contracting cavity pumping to a reduced 55-branch arterial network.
