Division of Engineering, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Mayo Clinic, 200 First Street SW, Rochester, MN, USA
Med Eng Phys 33:164-73. 2011..In the future, these results will be used to further improve the femoral strength predictions of our finite element models...
- Grid convergence errors in hemodynamic solution of patient-specific cerebral aneurysmsSimona Hodis
Department of Radiology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN 55905, USA
J Biomech 45:2907-13. 2012..Due to the geometric complexity of the fifth model, the grid convergence errors showed oscillatory behavior; therefore, each patient-specific model required its own grid convergence study to establish the accuracy of the analysis...
