The ELEM's Virtual Heart incorporates the three fundamental physics: electrical activity, mechanical deformation and fluid mechanics, coupling them tightly and bi-directionally.
Our models can include chambers and vasculature, which the code can simulate under different conditions of health, disease, and treatment.
Our Virtual Respiratory System simulates high-definition fluid mechanics from face down to several bronchi levels.
Different respiratoty cycles can be analysed to assess the drug-delivery action of inhalers and nebulizers thanks to a very efficient particle transport scheme. Both particles and fluid are solved simultaneously to preserve the scheme's high accuracy.
Our final vision is that of a completely interconnected network of organs and systems. Therefore we constantly struggle to extend code usage to include new biomedical problems in all their physics and scales.

Alya is the multi-scale / multi-physics parallel simulation code developed at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center since 2005.
High definition anatomical information is used to create your digital avatar or populations of them, where medical devices or drugs can be tested.
Developed in BSC's MareNostrum IV and deployed in a supercomputing cloud infrastructure, our solution is put directly in the hands of our customers.
