The Role of Numerical Simulation — Lesson 3

Like structural analysis, simulation evaluates various properties of a stent virtually, without having to perform complex experiments.


With simulation, you can carry out powerful “what-if” studies to optimize a stent design.

Simulation is even recommended by the FDA guidance document to determine properties such as stress, strain, fatigue life and other quantities.

And it also makes patient-specific designs possible.
