  • simulation of generic fluid-structure coupling for an immersed elastic body. 3D code,
  • simulation of fluid-structure coupling for a rigid solid. 2D en 3D codes.
Context in which the software is used
  • computation of equilibrium shapes of red blood cells,
  • simulation of the dynamic behavior of a red blood cell in shear flow,
  • simulation of the isolated cardiomyocyte contraction in a Pétri dish,
