Self-Expanding Stents

Ansys Simulation Certification

Description

To enroll in this certification, please visit the Market space.Once enrolled, please complete the courses included in the certifications shown below.Upon completion of the certification requirements, you will be rewarded with access to a digital credential.

The buildup of plaque in arteries can restrict blood flow, and stents are an important tool in addressing arterial disease.  While there are different types of stents, this course focuses on how to model, simulate and evaluate self-expanding Nitinol stents including their deployment in a simulated artery with plaque. What is taught in this course can be applied to stents in any region of the body.In fact, the course covers many techniques that can be applied to other disciplines in the biomedical field and well beyond.
In fact, here are just some of the specific topics that will be touched upon as needed to solve our self-expanding stent simulations;
  • Geometry Pre-Processing
  • Shape Memory Alloy Material Modeling
  • Contact Modeling
  • Hyperelasticity
  • Curve Fitting
  • Newton Raphson Method
  • Design of Experiments, Response Surfaces, and Optimization
  • Fatigue of Nitinol
  • Non-Linear Stabilization
  • Cyclic Symmetry
  • Troubleshooting non-convergence
This material will be presented through engaging video based lectures, handout slides, instructor lead workshops, homework problems, and quizzes. Please join us!

Stents are commonly used in the treatment of various vessel disorders and vascular diseases, most notably coronary artery disease. While designing stents, it is necessary to ensure their proper function and confirm that they meet their numerous objectives. These include opening the occluded vessel and withstanding repetitive movements, all while preventing breakage and failure due to a wide range of loading conditions including fatigue. In this course we will introduce the fascinating topic of stenting and set the stage for the remaining courses in this learning track on the numerical simulation of self-expanding stents. Our overview lessons will cover these three main topics: diseases and treatments, types of stents and the role of numerical simulation in designing them.

Stents are commonly used in the treatment of various vessel disorders and vascular diseases, most notably coronary artery disease. While designing stents it is necessary to ensure their proper function and confirm that the stent opens the occluded vessel and withstands repetitive movements, all while preventing breakage and failure due to these various loading conditions. In this course we will cover the detailed modeling of stents from geometric flat patterns to simulating the stent and making some preliminary design assessments regarding its performance.

These include opening the occluded vessel and withstanding repetitive movements, while preventing breakage and failure due to varying loading conditions that could lead to fatigue. In this course we will cover the detailed representation of blood vessels and plaque, including the details of modeling the various layers of the vessel and plaque. We also cover the associated hyperelastic material modeling and curve fitting to experimental data.

These include opening the occluded vessel and withstanding repetitive movements while preventing breakage and failure due to varying loading conditions that could lead to fatigue. In this course we will cover stent deployment. We combine the crimped stent model into our vessel and plaque model to simulate delivery of the stent to a diseased artery with pulsatile loading. We also cover how to use simulation to improve stent design by demonstrating design points, design of experiments, response surfaces and optimization. Finally, we close out the course with a best practices and summary.

This learning track consists of 6 courses:
•Antenna Toolkit
•HFSS 3D Components
•5G Cross Dipole Antenna Array
•Platform Analysis Using Ansys HFSS SBR+
•Landscape simulation using Ansys HFSS SBR+
•Electrothermal simulation using Ansys HFSS with Icepak
