Item Description: The research reported here supports a major collaborative project with a venture capital financed hi-tech start-up company, Calon Cardio Technology Ltd (CCTL) to develop highly innovative miniaturised heart pumps rotating at plus ten thousand rpm to pump blood at 5l/min without causing excessive haemolysis damage to the blood flow. The CFD model captures the rotor behaviour explicitly in time and itself embeds a model of haemolysis - blood damage, as it flows through the device. The full physics is captured in very complex mixed rotating-static three dimensional geometries with +1million mixed element meshes solved on high performance clusters.
