Mission Statement

Is interplanetary travel possible for mankind? This group of students work to research the various physiological hinderances of space travel. Using computer simulations and modeling we discover the true limits of human space exploration.

Fenics

Finite Element Solver

A computational computer program that allows students to model blood flow in terms of pressure and velocity in a single blood vessel. Fenics utilizes the finite element method and partial differential equations to solve the Navier Stokes Equations of fluid motion.

CVSIM

Computer program that models blood flow in different blood vessels and at different postures. Used to simulate the cardiovascular effects of microgravity in space. Implications from these results could lead to answers regarding human tolerance to microgravity. Learn more.
