We solve hard problems that matter.

Computational Modeling and Simulation

Our highly experienced computational modeling and simulation team supports product development activities as well as regulatory approvals. We perform finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics and RF heating simulation related to MRI on a wide range of devices. We are active in research and publication with the ultimate goal of reducing the burden of the medical device approval process while improving or maintaining patient safety.

We have expertise using state-of-the-art finite element software (ABAQUS and COMSOL Multiphysics) to solve a variety of complex problems, such as:

  • Simulation of geometrically detailed vascular, gastrointestinal, and orthopedic devices.
  • Failure analysis of devices and Computational Fluid Dynamics.
  • Experimentally validated multiphysics simulation with electromagnetic coupled heat transfer for RF-induced heating of medical devices during MRI.
  • Ongoing research collaboration with the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) at FDA on the topic of computational modeling and simulation.
