1540x800 Simcenter Star Ccm Terumo Blood Pump Design White Paper 629e2c1cc1e54

Computational Fluid Dynamics for Ventricular Assist Device Optimization

June 6, 2022
Introducing simulation-led design exploration for medical devices – learn how Terumo used Simcenter STAR-CCM+ to create a better blood pump.

The use of computer-aided engineering (CAE) significantly reduces workload while ensuring reliability and improving medical device designs. Engineering simulation is being recognized and adopted by regulatory authorities, manufacturers and suppliers around the world. One example is a workshop on blood damage studies via modeling of a blood pump, organized by the FDA, to set best practices and promote use of simulation in device design. With increasing visibility and acceptance, CAE is now at the forefront of medical device design.

This white paper discusses the developments in blood pump design using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and optimization techniques with Terumo Corporation.
