[VIDEO AVAILABLE] Severo Ochoa Seminar - "Data-Driven Computational Mechanics for Improving Acute Ischemic Stroke Treatment", by Miquel Aguirre
ABSTRACT Stroke is the second cause of death and major cause of disability worldwide. The most prevalent type of stroke is Acute Ischemic Stroke (AIS), which occurs when a thrombus blocks a neck or intracranial artery. This blockage impairs perfusion to a portion of the brain causing ischemia, whic...

[VIDEO AVAILABLE] Severo Ochoa Seminar - "Modelling and simulations of coffee espresso extraction: from microstructural changes to flow properties." by Marco Ellero
ABSTRACT Espresso extraction is a complex process involving water flow through a porous medium undergoing time-dependent geometric changes, solubilisation of hydrophilic substances, emulsification of insoluble coffee oils and suspension of coffee cell-wall fragments ("fines"). In this talk I will d...

[VIDEO AVAILABLE] Severo Ochoa Seminar - "High fidelity and surrogate modelling for compressible two-phase flows" by Dr. Niccolò Tonicello
ABSTRACT The use of high-order methods in computational fluid dynamics is becoming more and more widespread thanks to their desirable features such as low levels of numerical dissipation, intrinsic geometrical flexibility and fast convergence properties. However, it is well-known that the treatment...

[VIDEO AVAILABLE] Severo Ochoa Seminar - "From Mechanobiology of aortic smooth muscle cells to improved prognosis of thoracic aortic aneurysms" by Stéphane Avril
ABSTRACT The media of the aorta consists primarily of smooth muscle cells (SMCs) embedded in a highly structured matrix of collagen fibrils and elastin lamellae. Thanks to their phenotypic plasticity [1], SMCs normally maintain a certain mechanical homeostasis through variations of their active ton...
